Quarterly Building Inspection Program

All university owned, rented, or leased buildings are required to be inspected at least quarterly.  Building Coordinators are responsible for ensuring that inspections are conducted in their assigned buildings.

Problems & issues identified during the inspections should be corrected by the personnel performing the inspection if possible.  We understand that many issues require professional assistance to be corrected but many simple issues can be corrected by yourself and other occupants in your building. All found hazards should be entered into Fixx for repairs at fixx.ulm.edu. The work order numbers should be noted on the inspection sheets.

When performing the inspection try to check with the various occupants of the building.  These occupants may have noticed safety hazards that you have not noticed.

For issues that pose an imminent threat to building occupants please report these directly to the Environmental Health & Safety Officer by telephone at 342-5177.

Once the inspection is complete please review the form for accuracy.  Make sure that you have signed the form.  Make a copy of the form for your records and send a copy of the form to the Environmental Health & Safety Office.

Due dates for submitting the completed building inspection forms are as follows, unless otherwise noted:
1st Quarter -     February 15
2nd Quarter -    May 1
3rd Quarter -     September 1 
4th Quarter -     November 15 

The EH&S department has developed a standard building inspection form to be used when conducting the inspections:
