6. Who are “supervisors” and “employees”?

Supervisors are defined via a link in the online supervisor’s modules, but include staff and faculty who direct the actions of UCSB-paid employees.   Non-paid workers (e.g. volunteers, visitors) fall into a gray area, but in short they should be given the same level of training and safety consideration as paid employees if doing similar work.  Given the transient nature of some elements of the campus population it is difficult task for departments to track these people for the purposes of IIPP and DEOP orientation.  However, this task is now simpler given the ease of access of our web-based training tools.
