About EHS


  The EHS Mission

The Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) serves the University community by providing technical support, information and training, consultation, and periodic audits of environmental, health and safety practices and regulatory compliance.

The EHS staff comprises University employees working in a coordinated effort to address health and safety issues in four broad areas: workplace safety, chemical safety, radiation safety, and biosafety and sanitation.

Workplace Safety addresses a number of issues affecting well-being in the office, laboratory and shop. Chemical Safety and Industrial Hygiene is concerned with the recognition, evaluation and control of health hazards related to use of chemical and physical agents. Radiation Safety provides services related to uses of radioactive materials and radiation-producing equipment. Biosafety and Sanitation includes services related to recognition, evaluation and control of microbiological hazards and unsanitary conditions.
