Protecting the health and safety of employees, students, guests, and the environment is the primary concern of all of us at the College of Engineering. This goal can be met through the development of a comprehensive and effective environmental health and safety plan that endeavors to eliminate unsafe conditions and minimize the impact of hazardous situations. Such a program can benefit the college community by reducing illness and injury to students and personnel, preventing property damage, and preserving the environment. The college will make every reasonable effort to promote, create, and maintain a safe and healthful environment. This can only be realized by adherence to basic safety principles, sound management practices, and compliance with applicable federal, state, and local codes, laws, and standards.
