EHS News and Announcements

Updated Safety and Security Laboratory Policy

Faculty and staff working in teaching or research laboratories are encouraged to review the recently updated Safety and Security Laboratory Policy.  Please contact the EHS office with any questions or concerns.


Annual Testing of Fire Systems

Over the summer, EHS and an associated contractor will be conducting annual testing of campus fire alarm and sprinkler systems. The testing is expected to be complete by mid-August and should pose minimal disturbance to building occupants. 


Updated Property Administration Policy

Environmental Health & Safety announces the updated Property Administration policy.  This is the first time this policy has been updated in ten years; it now better reflects the actual administration of the operations, removes procedural steps and looks toward the future related to technological innovation and improvements.  We encourage all staff and assigned asset users to read the updated policy here or on the Asset Management website.
