Environmental Health and Safety


The Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) mission is to promote a positive, responsible, integrated safety culture at all levels of the university community. EHS accomplishes its role through education, consultation, and compliance monitoring. Services include emergency management, campus alert system, incident reporting/tracking, risk management, chemistry storeroom, hazardous waste removal, campus training, and sustainability initiatives. The EHS website, along with frequent electronic campus updates, serves as an effective tool for communicating this key support process. EHS serves as the coordinator and primary contact point for campus emergency services and safety.
