Environmental Health & Safety

Environmental Health and Safety assists the campus in providing a safe and healthful workplace through the development and implementation of programs which minimize the risk of occupationally related injury or illness. Also, EH&S develops and implements programs to ensure the safe use, handling and storage of hazardous materials and appropriate and compliant disposal of hazardous wastes. These are accomplished through employee training programs, procedures and policies, and compliance surveys.

New Online MSDS System

Environmental Health & Safety subscribes to MSDSOnline, an online database to provide Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for hazardous materials used on campus. Campus users can access the site at: . No login or special access codes are required, if accessed from a campus computer. Cal OSHA allows this online system to replace our paper MSDS files as long as hazardous materials users have access to a computer with the link to the MSDSOnline in the immediate vicinity of the hazmat use.

Updates to the Hazard Communication Program

Environmental Health & Safety has updated the campus Hazard Communication Program to clarify roles and responsibilities for key processes, including the implementation of required education and training program, as well as a process to monitor departments for compliance. The revised program can be found here:
