Services during COVID-19 response

Is the Environmental Health and Safety Office still open?

EHS is implementing a remote workforce to the extent possible. Staff will continue to respond to phone and email questions/requests and process protocols and forms. Chemical, radioactive and biohazardous waste pick-ups will continue as well. Contact your safety advisor or other EHS staff, as needed. 

Accessing EHS Written Manuals and Forms

EHS uses SharePoint to maintain our written programs and documents. As a UI member, you have read access to all of the documents posted on our website and will need to log in to your UI Office 365 account to view the document(s).

OSHA Inquiries and Inspections

University-wide procedures have been put in place to provide a more consistent institutional response to potential health and safety issues raised by Iowa OSHA and to implement timely action to ensure a safety environment for employees. Follow the procedures outlined in this document if you are contacted by Iowa OSHA.
