Protecting Life, Property and the Environment

The Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Department protects life, property and the environment on all properties of the University.

  • We monitor the local, state, and federal laws and regulations as well as professional standards and codes in these areas.
  • We manage how the University maintains its facilities and equipment, assist in managing those risks.
  • We track developments in environmental health and safety laws and regulations, and determine which of those requirements apply to campus activities.

EHS assists the University meet these requirements by developing programs to be implemented by campus personnel and or by direct services. EHS abides by the University Environmental Health and Safety Policy.

All policies and procedures can be found on the EHS DORI site.
