Environmental Health & Safety


Welcome to EHS

The Environmental Health and Safety Department's mission is to provide environmental and safety oversight, technical assistance, and a multitude of services to the campus community. We aim to provide and insure a safe and healthful environment for faculty, staff, students, and visitors.  To achieve this goal, we continually seek improvement in conditions and practices to minimize the risk of environmental and safety incidents.


The Lab Update

Renovations are currently being made on the organic chemistry laboratories that are scheduled to be completed by the beginning of the fall 2013 semester. The labs will be equipped with new and up-to-date equipment that will create a positive learning environment for students to conduct experiments. Meanwhile, certain areas of Harvey Ingham will be inaccessible due to construction activity and be aware of the noise coming from the construction.


Topic of the Season

The flowers are now in full bloom and the grass has never been greener, but for some this is a bittersweet season. Allergies affect over 20% of Americans and relief can be as easy as a trip to your local pharmacy. There are several over the counter products that your local pharmacist can recommend, but for severe cases of allergies consult your doctor.
