Building Coordinator Program

A leading faculty or staff member has been assigned to each academic, administrative and general purpose building on Murray State's campus as a building coordinator. The Office of Environmental Safety and Health has designed an instructive module to aid building coordinators in the training of faculty and staff (in their building) in safety guidelines and emergency response procedures before one occurs. This program consists of a Power Point presentation, training manual and hazard specific pamphlets. A copy of this program will remain with the building coordinator for use by the faculty and staff of that building. ESH personalized the training programs by providing digital photos that increase faculty and staff awareness by depicting life safety equipment that is distinctive to their building.

Building Coordinator Operational Guidelines

Applies to all regular, 12-month, full-time Faculty and Staff. Part-time employees and persons working less than 12 months are not eligible. This is an additional task for these employees and it should not affect their regular jobs.
