About Environmental Health and Safety
The Office of Environmental Health & Safety was recently created to assist faculty, staff and students on all safety related activities at the University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth. The office exists to provide for a safe educational and work environment for all and ensure the protection of the environment. This is accomplished by:
· Providing guidance in best practices for work with hazardous materials and equipment
· Offering a wide range of safety training,
· Conducting safety audits of the campus facilities; including, laboratories, machine shops, art studies, etc. and
· Management of the hazardous waste generated as a result of day-to-day educational and research activities.
This can only be done with the cooperation and participation of the campus community.
