Safety Programs and Training

A goal of the Office of Environmental Safety and Health is to increase the safety awareness of the campus community by providing these educational programs.  ESH serves the University as a safety and health resource for academic departments and other campus organizations.

All accidents and/or injuries on campus should be reported immediately to an immediate supervisor.  Notification should also be made to ESH as soon as possible.
