“Our vision at NMSU is to meet the changing needs of New Mexicans through high-quality, affordable education and through the creation and sharing of knowledge in the true spirit of a land-grant university. The university’s risk management goal is to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses, environmental incidents and property loss. Achieving this goal is the responsibility of every member of the university community.”

– Excerpt from the NMSU Employee Safety Handbook
The NMSU Employee Safety Handbook is an easy-to-read guide for employees that briefly describes many of the university’s procedures, programs and services that were established to:
- Minimize the number of workplace injuries and illnesses,
- Prevent property damage or loss, and
- Eliminate incidents that may cause harm to the environment.
The handbook was written to be used as a safety reference by employees and include lists of emergency phone numbers and other important safety-related contacts.
