PEST MANAGEMENT It is the objective of Physical Facilities to incorporate safe, efficient, and effective pest control procedures in order to control structural and landscape pests within the buildings and on the grounds of Del Mar College. Del Mar College contracts the services of a professional pest management company in order to fulfill its pest management obligations. All pesticides used by the company on Del Mar College property conform to federal, state and local ordinances and laws, and are approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. Physical Facilities and the College’s Environmental Health, Safety, and Risk Management department approve the pesticides for use. The company is required to meet posting requirements and employ ‘certified applicators’ in order to perform work at Del Mar College as specified and regulated under Texas Administrative Code, Title 4, Part 1, Chapter 7, Subchapter H, Division 3, Rule §7.146. Emergency ProceduresIf it is determined that immediate treatment is needed, the Physical Facilities designate will contact the Environmental Health, Safety, and Risk Management office to inspect the reported area and determine if an emergency treatment is required. Upon their determination that the area inspected is an emergency requiring immediate treatment, the 48-hour notification procedure above is bypassed. An emergency waiver must then be signed by the department/building coordinator and faxed to the company authorizing immediate treatment.
