EHS News & Announcements
Reminder to Drivers of University Vehicles
Students, staff and faculty who drive university vehicles are reminded of the District of Columbia's Engine Anti-Idling Law, which prohibits idling for more than three minutes when vehicles are stopped, standing or parked. This time limit is raised to five minutes only when temperatures drop below 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
Annual Building Inspections
EHS has completed our annual building inspections for the 2013 calendar year. We appreciate the cooperation of building administrators, department chairs and other staff/faculty and we look forward to your continued support as we resume this process in May of 2014.
