Each department is required to designate an Additional Duty Safety Officer (ADSO). That employee assists Risk Management to ensure the day-to-day safety of their department's employees.Man in gas mask

The ADSO for each department will act as the point of contact for Risk Management.  The ADSOs will inform Risk Management of concerns/issues within their departments, and Risk Management will communicate the policies, procedures, regulations, and standards to the University community through the ADSOs.

If you are not sure who your ADSO is, please contact your supervisor or Risk Management.


The Director of Environmental, Safety & Health will hold occasional meetings with all ADSOs to provide training, communicate new Risk Management policies, and to solicit feedback.  Notifications of these meetings will be sent out via email to the ADSOs currently on the list maintained by Risk Management.

If you are an ADSO and were unable to attend the last meeting, a video of the meeting is available online for viewing.  Please contact Risk Management for information on accessing this video.

Training Oversight

New employees should all participate in the New Employee Orientation conducted by Human Resources, which includes basic safety information applicable to all employees.  In addition, ADSOs and employee supervisors should ensure that employees complete all required Risk Management training and any department/workplace specific training.  Risk Management will send regular updates on incomplete employee training in each department to the appropriate ADSO.  Click here more information on Risk Management training.
