Welcome to Environmental Health & Safety

It is the mission of the Office of Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) to support the academic and administrative functions of the university to help ensure a safe and healthful workplace and the environmentally sound management of hazardous materials. This is accomplished through collaborative, team-oriented methods that identify the optimum compliance strategies in harmony with the activities of the university.

EH&S aims to establish comprehensive occupational health and safety compliance programs that are seamlessly and systematically integrated into the academic and administrative activities of the university and, consequently, preserve the human and fiscal resources of the university. Likewise, EH&S aims to demonstrate leadership in implementing environmentally sound hazardous materials/waste management practices to demonstrate a model of environmental stewardship beyond mere compliance.
