Can I be held liable for an employee's injury if I am the designated PPE Coordinator?

As long as you follow the requirements outlined in the program and practice reasonable care, you will not be held liable. The university, through the state self- insured program, maintains liability insurance to protect its employees provided the employee is acting within the course and scope of their employment. Defense, if needed would be provided through the University General Counsel. Students are required to have their own insurance (either on themselves or through their parents).
