The Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) is responsible for the health, safety and well-being of the College community, as well as protection of the environment. Working closely with all departments and local, state and federal regulatory agencies, EH&S collectively and continuously works to develop a comprehensive health and safety program that includes best management practices (BMP's), incident reporting and investigation, inspections, policies and procedures, regulatory permits, recordkeeping and training to best protect faculty, staff, students, visitors, property and the environment.
