GBC SAFETY & SECURITY OVERVIEW
The Mission of the Department of Environmental Health, Safety and Security at Great Basin College
is to provide a safe and secure environment for all staff, faculty, students and visitors on
all the college centers.
The Department encourages all faculty, staff and students to be active in helping to keep the
Great Basin College centers safe places for all. Be aware of your surroundings, use common
sense precautions for your personal safety, lock your vehicle when parking and when possible at
night walk with friends. If you observe any suspicious or unusual activity please contact
Security or the Campus Director so the situation can be investigated. If you see suspected
criminal activities report it immediately.
The Director of Environmental Health, Safety & Security offers training on a variety of topics
throughout the year. At the beginning of each semester and throughout the year training
is offered on emergency procedures including evacuation, notification of an emergency and dealing
with upset or disruptive persons. Training on Safety topics is normally offered as department
specific training however, training can be scheduled for any group by contacting the director
to schedule a training session.
All GBC buildings are designated as tobacco free as defined by N.R.S. 202.249. Those
using tobacco products are requested to be outside buildings in our open areas not directly outside
NO CHILDREN IN CLASSROOMS, LABS, OR ACCESS AREAS
Great Basin College (GBC) is committed to providing a place of instruction that is conducive to learning;
and that is, to the greatest extent possible, free from distractions. Only enrolled students should be present in
classrooms, field trips, fitness center(s) and lab facilities.
The only pets (dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, ferrets, etc.) that are allowed inside our campus
buildings are those trained and licensed as handicapped assist animals. It is not okay to
bring your pet to work or class and expect others to be as happy about it as you are. Some
members of the campus community are not pet people, some are allergic to fur and some just think
this is a distraction to the work and learning setting. Please be courteous to our faculty,
staff and students and leave your pets at home.
