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.
