Student Conduct and Community Standards (SCCS) is raising awareness regarding certain policies in the Code of Conduct at WSU. For the Month of November, SCCS is discussing fire safety and cooking. Did you know that the fire safety policy in the Student Code of Conduct discusses: Breaking the plane Failure to follow emergency procedures Falsely reporting an emergency Fire, explosion or other safety hazards Fireworks, hazardous chemicals or explosives Misuse of emergency equipment Propping doors Additionally, if you live in the WSU’s residence halls, there is a cooking policy that provides helpful tips and regulations when cooking, such as: Never leave a stove, oven or microwave with active heat sources unattended. Utilize the venting features through either a vent hood or microwave vent when using the stove to cook. Exercise an abundance of caution when cooking with any type of oil. Cooking vessels must not be filled more than 25% with oil. Properly dispose of oil and grease leftover from any cooking. Never dispose of grease or oil down a sink drain. Allow grease and oil to cool before attempting to dispose of it. Do not put metal or part-metal containers or utensils in microwaves. Always verify a dish or vessel is rated for use in a microwave before placing it in a microwave. More details regarding fire safety and other policies in the Student Code of Conduct can be found in Section VI: Prohibited Conduct in the Student Code of Conduct Handbook. SCCS is here to help ensure that all students’ experience are safe. As a WSU faculty or staff member, if you need to report any potential conduct issues to the SCCS office through the school year, please use the conduct incident response form.
