If the the U center has all this money to waste on needless and costly sutdies then it time for a financial audit of where our tax dollars are going and they are obligaed to redkuce health care costs to public and insurance companies.

The study is baseless and has no justification, all the U center has to do is get a free book from the federal government OSHA and it is full of job safety standards for every occupation imaginable or established. It is the Bible of safety and the only legal document that any employer in governemnt or private business is allowed to use. Every major business has one of these free books so why doesn't the U center have one for its employees and workers?

The federal labor act laws are also full of documents on worker safety and what items the employers must provide for the safety of every single worker down to those picking tomatoes or pulling weeds.

More waste and abuse of tax funds mismanagement and fraud.

@ My2Cents,
Our educational institutions do not have "all this money to waste..." As you have proven with your grammar and punctuation.
The article listed several significant improvement in several areas. OSHA's CFR's are not free, these books are general guidelines for the respective industries. You speak in terms of "black and white" with no shades of grey concerning the work environment.
Also, the CFR series is NOT THE ONLY LEGAL DOCUMENT, allowed or other wise. To list a few; BLS, NIOSH, NFPA, State approved plans, Manufacturers equipment manuals and Employers manuals.
Please do not speak with ignorance in the public forum, those that are not involved in HSE fields read these comments and do not get an "informed opinion", which could be detrimental to workers safety.
