​Our Purpose

The Environmental Health & Safety Office (EHS) is a service organization that works to provide every student, faculty member and employee with a safe and healthy learning and working environment.​

This can only be fully achieved with your involvement. Your cooperation is critical in two ways:

  1. You operate in a safe manner while you are working or attending classes/events on campus
  2. You notify your supervisor and/or EHS for timely corrective action by reporting:
    • A serious workplace injury
    • A situation that presents a danger of injury to an individual
    • A situation that presents a danger of damage to property
    • An incident that poses a risk of polluting our community’s air, water or land resources
