Discussion followed in
regard about how to distribute the Flip Charts. It was suggested by
Dave Cunningham that the charts be drilled for hanging. He will also
check into locations—some suggestions were: Science labs, mid-way of
The President will check
with Cabinet to see that their offices have the charts. We also need
to have a list of where the charts are located so that when updates are
done, we can make sure we update all copies.
Review of the Annual Report
The President’s Office will
pay for the training of the CHO for the one person on main campus as well as
Bill will check and notify
Christine Post and Gary Waggoner
The following change was
noted and made: No. 14 “Fill the open position of a Chemical Hygiene
Officer, assist with record management and provide additional training for
new personnel.” be added as a goal.
Training for Fork
Will be offered to certify
new employees as well as re-certify approximately a dozen employees who has
previously taken the training.
A list of employees will be
maintained in the President’s Office.
Dave Cunningham noted that
this fits well into BRIM.
reports that the focus has been clarified as to what they want to achieve.
Adjunct faculty required to travel by contract will be required to take
training as well as all full-time employees. Dave reports that we will
be able to meet this requirement quite easily.
Objective list was
updated with the following:
practice semester fire drills.” Fire drills have been scheduled with
the first one scheduled for March 1. This announcement has been
printed on the back of the Evacuation card that will be distributed to
A First Responders meeting
will need to be completed prior to the March 1 fire drill. JCC will
also be having their fire drill on March 1. An article will be placed in the
Chronicle as a reminder to students, faculty and staff. To help
familiarize them, students should also be reminded of where they are and
what the proper emergency exits are located.
It was suggested that Bill
Brown and Joe Smith coordinate the Wood County School’s fire drill with the
WVU Parkersburg’s drill and that both be scheduled on the March 1 date.
Emergency Phone Update by
A cheaper system of phones
connected to our current system though the switchboard and connected at all
times would consist of approximately 13 phones in the main building and
three outside in the parking lot.
The second system is simpler
but requires a consolidator and power supply
The phones are to be red and
single dial which immediately connects to the switchboard and holds all
other phone traffic until the call is handled. Cost per phone is about
$219, consolidator about $800 and the power supply is $1,200.
The installation would be in
at least two stages to buildings and then parking lots.
Locations for parking lots
would be in the center of long spaces. Location for buildings is
suggested in the stairwells, but a definite location needs to be identified.
Caperton Center would
require phones in the stairwells and perhaps in the lobbies and JCC would
probably be about the same.
If we complete the
installation in stages, compatibility between wired and wireless phones
should not be a problem.
Discussion centered on
computer training of the security guards. While a wireless laptop was
suggested, the issue of having the ability to access the Events Calendar and
college e-mail seemed to be the main focus. This provides them with
the ability to provide information. Dave Cunningham and Al Collins are
to check into this.
“23. Define the
procedure for addressing issues and concerns.”
Dan Williamson is to create
a place where these concerns could be addressed via e-mail going to the
Safety Committee members. This will allow people to share issues and

She also suggested
that we need to have a plan—a schedule for Safety Events—that will occur in
the coming year, i.e. safety training, computer training, driver’s training,
forklift training, etc.
Bill handed out the
Houston Community College System’s Safety Manual and asks that we come back
to the meeting with suggestions of what we would like to put into something
announced that on February 2, personnel from WVU will be on campus to do an
indoor air study to identify “stuff” in the air handling system. He
also expressed his concern on the future of the sprinkler system. He
adds that the rules and expectations are constantly being updated and
changed—it is a critical safety issue that needs constant attention.
With no other
business, the meeting was adjourned.
