First Aid Supplies Order Sheet

We are making a shift to providing only First Aid items, as opposed to Home Health items. Click the First Aid Supplies Order Sheet to see the corresponding list. First Aid items are ones that are time critical, that need to be available immediately. Home Health items are not time critical, but are more of a convenience item. Some conditions which the Home Health items treat are conditions in which the employee may need to stay home.

 

Safety Tips

Protect Your Room or Apartment

  • Lock your door, even if you are only going to the bathroom or room next door. A surprising number of thefts from room to room happen while the resident is on the same floor, but has just stepped out for "a minute."
  • Lock your door when you are asleep.
  • Limit the amount of money and valuables you keep in your room. Keep those items out of sight. Do not make an opportunity for theft.
  • Never prop open any outside door to a residence hall. Close any exterior doors that you find propped open and report them to the RA on duty. Open doors are invitations to strangers and others who do not have any reason to be in the building.
  • Challenge anyone who is trying to get into your hall. Suspicious people and others who cannot satisfactorily explain their presence should be asked to leave and should be reported immediately to Campus Safety and the RA on duty. Provide an accurate description of the person(s) and his or her whereabouts.
  • When moving in or out of your room, do not leave suitcases and other belongings unattended. Lock your room door, car door and trunk as you make trips back and forth.
  • Never loan your keys to anyone — not even a friend. They may not be as careful with them as you are, and may lose or misplace them just long enough for the wrong person to gain possession.
  • Report any lost keys to your RA or CRL immediately.

Protect Yourself

  • Learn how to avoid becoming a victim of assault. Rape Prevention Education, Personal Safety, and Safety and Self-Defense Classes are offered every semester.
  • Be aware — sexual assaults are committed by acquaintances more often than strangers.

Protect Your Bicycle

  • Secure your bike at all times. Buy a good lock and cable or chain and use it. Lock your bike to a fixed object (i.e., bike rack or pod) whenever possible.

At Other Locations On Campus

  • Never leave backpacks, purses, books, or other valuables unattended in classrooms or library.
  • Remove all unnecessary valuables from your backpack. The backpack shelves in the bookstore and dining hall are not secure.
  • Put your name on your property, your books and calculators.

JBU has 11 elevators on campus, a number that will grow as new buildings and renovations are completed. Campus elevators are inspected semi-annually and tested annually to ensure that they are working safely. To promote elevator safety, campus safety is posting information at each campus elevator, and in the existing safety manual.
