University of Iowa

Welcome to our NEW EHS website

EHS is pleased to launch a new website which offers users a modern, easy-to-navigate platform for accessing our office’s policies and resources.”

Organization

As with the prior website, our information is primarily organized by the safety section that oversees the program/regulation.  The new platform has the top-bar navigation menu shown on every page.  The navigation menu lists each safety section as a top-level "landing page" with dropdown menus linking to the associated programs.  We have maintained the Lab Audit section, which is a laboratory specific section that includes information on the annual lab review, safety rounds, and descriptions of the committees that are involved in setting policies and regulations that affect UI research laboratories. 

Mobile Friendly Design

You can now easily navigate through our website on your mobile device.  If you are visiting our page using a mobile device, the menu can be viewed by clicking the three horizontal bars (a.k.a. hamburger menu) located in the top right corner.

Expandable Pages

The new website has allowed us to add accordion sections within various pages.  These sections are shown in a grey bar with an arrow on the left hand side.  The section can be expanded to show more information by clicking within the grey bar; you can collapse the section by clicking within the bar a second time.  This new formatting should help users quickly navigate to the section of interest without having to scroll through long paragraphs of information.

Accessing EHS Written Programs/Documents

We have continued to use SharePoint to maintain EHS written programs and documents.  When you click on a link to a document hosted on a University of Iowa SharePoint site, if you are not already logged into your Office 365 account, the Microsoft Sign In window will appear. See screenshot below.

Once logged in, you will be redirected to your document.  You will be able to save your log in information and password for this site so you are not required to log in each time. However, if your computer is set up to clear cookies each time you close your browser, your log in will be cleared and you will need to enter your credentials each time to access a page.

If you do not know your HawkID and/or password, please visit the HawkID Tools Page or contact Information Technology Services (319-384-4357 or its-helpdesk@uiowa.edu).

Assistance

Please be patient as the transition progresses and contact us if you need assistance locating any information or happen upon a broken link (ehs-contact@uiowa.edu).
