Welcome to the Environmental Health & Safety Web Page.

The Environmental Health & Safety Office (EHSO) is responsible for the administration of programs that promote a safe and healthful environment for the University community. This is accomplished through prudent application of sound environmental and occupational safety and health practices.

The EHSO is guided by the following areas of emphasis:

  • Assist the University community in achieving compliance with applicable federal, state and local environmental, occupational safety and health and public health laws and regulations.
  • Provide professional consultation, educational programs and training to promote safe work practices, protect the environment, and achieve regulatory compliance.
  • Pursue close communication, trust and commitments with the University and regulatory agencies that will foster cooperation in achieving departmental goals and regulatory compliance.
