Health and Safety checks are done on a monthly basis by the Residential Life staff in your building. These checks are to make sure that your rooms are in accordance with the policies set forth by the University. Our number one priority it your safety and it all starts with having a safe and healthy room to live in. Here are some tips on how you can pass your Health and Safety inspections:
- Know the policies: Ignorance is not an excuse when it comes to Health and Safety checks. Just because you didn’t know that extension cords were prohibited doesn’t mean you can get away with having one. Know what items are prohibited in the residence halls! The student handbook is a great place to get this information!
- Keep your room clean: The cleaner your room is the better! This will help you avoid any unwanted write-ups and it will also keep you and your roommate in a happy stress free environment.
- Communicate with your roommates: If you know health and safety checks are coming up talk to your roommates. Discuss who is going to take the trash out, clean the kitchen, etc.
It is very simple to pass a Health and Safety check! Just follow all of the University policies that are outlined in the Student Handbook. Don’t wait until the last minute to try to clean up your room and always communicate with your roommates on who is going to clean up what.
