EHS News and Announcements

First Report of Injury Reminder

All employees are reminded to report any injuries to the Human Resources Office as soon as they are able to by completing the first report of injury form.  Our office has posted a custom presentation by United Educators to assist the employees and their supervisors in understanding the importance of the reporting.


New Eyewash Guidance

EHS reminds all users of laboratory and machine shop facilities on-campus of an updated resource from OSHA on the necessary maintenance of eye-wash stations.  Proper maintenance of these stations can minimize the risk of contaminated water and potential infection.




Solidarity for the Broken and those Who Remain


Here's an all-time favorite poem. Hopefully others may find comfort in reading it as well.


THE WEAVER________________________________
Written by B.M. Franklin (1882-1965)

My life is just a weaving
Between my Lord and me.
I cannot choose the colors
He weaves so skillfully.

Sometimes He weaveth sorrow
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.

Not ‘til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And explain the reasons why-

The dark threads are as needful,
In The Weaver’s skillful hands
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.


Let's keep the people of France lifted in prayer and do what we can to stand together against wickedness.
