Pandemic Safety Officer Contact List

(Last updated Aug. 13, 2020)  Each unit at Penn State has a Pandemic Safety Officer who is responsible for a specific work space, and will facilitate any planning and implementation of safety procedures.  They will also assist with assessment of suspected COVID cases and respond to questions, concerns, or enforcement in their respective units.  

Questions and procedures for returning to campus should be directed to your PSO. Your PSO will provide you with the specific requirements for your on-campus activities. Ruth Weber (rim100@psu.edu) is the back-up safety officer for units listed below and is the contact person for questions regarding PPE distribution.  If you are an employee in a unit outside of OSVPR, contact your supervisor to find out who your unit's PSO is.
