About Us

Mission Statement
 

The Environmental Health & Safety Office (EHS) provides services intended to promote health and safety, regulatory compliance, and environmental management. We offer a variety of services in the areas of Biological, Chemical, Occupational, and Radiation safety as well as select Environmental programs. Some of the direct services that we offer include chemical and radiation exposure monitoring, worksite hazard evaluations, workplace safety surveys, safety equipment recommendations, safety program reviews, safety training, and disposal of hazardous chemical, radioactive and infectious waste. Consultative services include regulatory compliance assistance programs to address OSHA, EPA, and CDC/USDA-related responsibilities within health care, research, academic, facility and service environments.

EHS has over 100 safety-related educational programs that are intended to inform individuals of potential hazards in their workplace. By utilizing the information presented, individuals will be capable of identifying risks inherent in their work and developing safe work practices and protocols in order to protect not only themselves, but others in the immediate area. Our goal is to continuously improve workplace safety for faculty, staff, and students. 

If you have suggestions for how we might better serve you or your department/area, please don't hesitate to contact us.
