The safety of our campuses is a cooperative effort of students, faculty, staff and visitors and all of us must assume responsibility for our own personal safety as well as the protection of our personal and College property.
Florida SouthWestern State College Risk Management Office handles the risk management and insurance for the College. It provides safety awareness to its employees. Its mission is to provide a safe and healthful workplace for campus employees, students and visiting public.
