The purpose of the Department of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) is to implement programs that protect the health and safety of campus personnel and the environment in accordance with regulatory code. Below are descriptions of programs overseen by the Department.

Environmental Programs

These programs are designed to decrease the University's impacts on the environment. Many of the University's environmental programs serve to fulfill regulations, however some programs go above and beyond, providing best practices to promote sustainability on campus.

Health Programs

Hazards to human health exist in every work environment. EH&S writes and implements programs addressing workplace health hazards in compliance with OSHA regulations. These Health Programs are designed to protect the well-being of campus workers, students, and visitors. 

Safety Programs

Proper implementation of these programs protects employees, students, and visitors from injury on campus. Safety programs are designed to eliminate hazards when possible, and protect campus occupants from all other existing dangers.
