Environment, Health & Safety >
The Department of Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S), in consultation with stakeholders, develops safety and environmental compliance standards, policies and procedures to guide the University community in meeting UB's Commitment to Safety.
EH&S functions as consultants to unit heads, faculty/staff members and students in all areas of environmental compliance, safety and radiological health. EH&S will make routine, as well as special health and risk appraisals or investigations when necessary or requested, will assist departmental safety committees in the development of intra-departmental safety programs and participate in health and safety training and education projects.
EH&S inspects campus operations and facilities to identify problems, provides code interpretations and consults with departments to assist in correcting problems. Inspections may be conducted routinely, or at the request of any member of the University community, or in response to accidents or other known problems.
EH&S also assists the University community in providing appropriate and necessary health and safety training to all staff and students. This assistance includes direct training, train the trainer support and assistance in developing customized or special training programs.
