EHS Policies

The policies and procedures of the Environmental Health and Safety Department are intended to guide Department and Institution activities in the spirit of the EHS mission statement. Policies and procedures will be modified to comply with regulatory requirements, School activities and administrative directives. Contact the EHS Department with any questions about current policies and procedures.

The policies below ensure safety as well as compliance with applicable rules and regulations, but typically affect only a few members of the campus community.

Environmental Health and Safety Policies which affect a larger portion of the campus community can be found on the University Policies page under the Facilities, Property & Safety link. Make sure you review these important University Policies as well.
