Fire Safety at the University is regulated by local building codes, such as the Seattle Fire Code for campuses and facilities in the Seattle area, as well as the Washington Industrial Safety and Health Act (WISHA). Enforcement of these codes and standards are handled by local fire departments and the Department of Labor and Industries. Many policies and programs have been initiated to help assure compliance with these codes and to protect and promote the public safety of faculty, staff, students, visitors, and emergency personnel.
