The safety of our student employees, as well as every other member of our campus community, is a priority at Auburn University. Maintaining a safe workplace is the responsibility of all hiring departments and supervisors employing on-campus student employees.

Auburn University’s Department of Campus Safety & Security is primarily responsible for Emergency Management. Hiring departments and student employees should become familiar with current plans and protocols outlined on the Emergency Management homepage. This page includes established guidelines for hazardous situations, as well as policies and procedures, emergency preparedness, weather, campus violence and contact information.

Important to Note

  • Departments should provide primary and secondary contacts upon hire, to ensure student employees are contacting the appropriate individual(s) in case of an emergency.

  • Hiring departments should also ensure students have received proper training and demonstrate ability to perform safety conscious job duties in a safe manner.

  • Student employees who fail to follow safety guidelines could be subject to corrective action, up to and including termination.

  • During an emergency, always call 911 first!

  • Sign up for AU ALERT, the university’s emergency notification system: Students can register up to three mobile phones to receive text and voice messages, three voice-only phones and three e-mail addresses. You will only be contacted through the system in the event of an emergency or for periodic system tests.
