a. Inspecting work areas and equipment.
b. Training frontline and supervisory staff.

The Vice President of Operations and Institutional Advancement, the Vice President of Finance, and the Vice President of Student Services shall appoint appropriate designated employees to be responsible for the collection, storage, and analysis of relevant operational and historical data required to develop sound procedures for implementation and operation of the comprehensive safety program.
MINOR CHILDREN ON CAMPUS
Classes and activities are offered at the College District for minor children. On these occasions, they are invited to avail themselves of these opportunities. At other times, however, parents and employees are cautioned that minor children are not permitted to remain unattended on campus or to attend classes or work with parents.
SAFETY AND SECURITY AUDIT
The governing board of each state institution of higher education, including each public junior college, may promulgate rules and regulations for the safety and welfare of students, employees, and property.
At least once every three years, each public junior college district shall conduct a safety and security audit of the district’s facilities. To the extent possible, a district shall follow safety and security audit procedures developed by the Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC) or a comparable public or private entity. A public junior college district shall report the results of the safety and security audit to the district's board of trustees and, in the manner required by the TxSSC, to the TxSSC.
Except as provided by Education Code 37.108(c-2) regarding certain emergency operations plans [see CGC], any document or information collected, developed, or produced during a safety and security audit is not subject to disclosure under Government Code Chapter 552.
