About OEHS

The Environmental Health & Safety Department (EHS) is responsible for coordinating all aspects of environmental management, occupational health, safety on campus, and implementing safety regulations for the University. We are committed to preventing fatalities, injuries, illness, and disabilities on the job and in the total campus community. The protection of our assets and maintenance of a safe and healthy campus environment is essential for productivity and excellence. The EHS staff is comprised of a group of technical experts, qualified and experienced applied scientists, and administrators. Their job is to ensure that the University maintains a safe and healthful living and working environment. We also lead the compliance effort on campus in order to make sure that environmental, health, and safety regulations are complied with. We provide many direct services to our faculty, staff, students, and visitors. We offer an array of training courses and related technical consultation.
