The safety policy of Marquette University is to provide for the protection of its faculty, staff, students, visitors, facilities and surrounding environment through the development and implementation of a comprehensive safety program.

Contractors are required to also provide safe workplaces and implement their own safety programs. Marquette University has prepared a Contractor Safety, Health and Environmental Guidebook pdf document to assist in coordinating Marquette facilities and contractor operations during construction, renovation projects and maintenance.

Additionally, contractors are required to comply with all applicable federal, state, local laws and university policies and follow safe work practices for the construction trades.
