At Calvin University, we believe that every employee, student and guest is entitled to a safe and healthful place to work, learn, and live. We are committed to protecting ourselves and the environment, as well as complying with governmental regulations. Because a contractor’s work on university premises can potentially affect the safety of Calvin students, staff, faculty, neighbors and property, the university is committed to hiring contractors who take the safety of our community and environment as seriously as we do.
With this in mind, we are implementing an amended safety policy in an effort to better understand who is on our campus, and when they are here. The following changes will be implemented for contracted service providers working in specific areas of campus:
- All service providers will be required to check in with the Campus Safety office prior to the start of work (staffed 24x7), either in person or by phone, to inform Campus Safety where you will be working and for how long
- Individual service providers will be subject to criminal history checks, with immediate authorization (completed during business hours)
