In order to provide and promote a safe working and living environment for the entire Trinity International University community, the Safety Committee works with university departments to:
- Inform the campus community of safe working and living practices
- Alert the campus community in the event of an emergency
- Protect the campus community through continued training and improvements
An emergency is any situation—actual or imminent—that endangers the safety and lives of Trinity employees/students, or the security of Trinity property.
Trinity International University shall not be held responsible for the actions taken by its employees in an emergency situation. A copy of the emergency manual will be available for review by students in the Student Affairs offices.* If you have a disability and would require special accommodations in an emergency, please notify your supervisor, instructor, RA, Human Resources, or Security prior to admission or employment. All information will be kept confidential.

The Chicagoland area has an extensive commuter railway system. When coupled with the freight train traffic in the area, you are almost certain to see trains daily. As a safety reminder for those who travel on the commuter trains and those who drive around the area, the Safety Committee is providing the following safety tips.
Always expect a train. Any time you approach a track, whether walking, driving or at the station always expect that a train is coming.
Always stop behind the designated line on the road, walkway or station platform.
Always look both ways before crossing the tracks.
Never stop on the tracks. Once you start across the track, do not stop.
Only cross at designated locations. The railroad tracks and the easement next to it is private property. Crossing at these locations is not just dangerous. It is against the law.
Warning signals mean the train is coming and it is to late to cross. Never rush to get across once the signals have activated.
Always expect another train. Many locations have multiple tracks when one train has passed, always check both ways for a second train and never continue until the signal devices have stopped.
