NOVA provides several resources and policies aimed toward helping to make your working and learning environment safe.

  • Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Control Plan – This policy applies to all NOVA departments whose employees anticipate contact with or exposure to potentially infectious materials during the performance of their duties.
  • Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) – This program provides public access to college maintained AEDs for use in the event of a cardiac emergency. This document establishes protocols for training, use and maintenance of AEDs located on college property and/or off-campus sites controlled by NOVA.
  • Several other safety related policies exist within the College, VCCS and DHRM and can be found on the College’s Handbook and Policies page.
