The Department of Environmental Safety, Sustainability and Risk (ESSR) joins the National Safety Council and thousands of organizations nationwide in celebrating National Safety Month.
National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury at work, at school, on the road and in our homes and communities.
ESSR has four units that focus on safety:
Manages the university's compliance with the State Fire Prevention Code and other applicable fire safety laws and standards.
Facilitates compliance with federal and state environmental regulations.
Provides support and consultation regarding the risks naturally encountered in the course of the research, service, and teaching mission of the university.
Supports the research community in meeting the university’s Expectations for Conducting Safe Research with the expertise of the Biosafety, Laboratory Safety and Radiation Safety professional staff.
How can National Safety Month help make a difference?
We can use this month to increase awareness about best practices that can help prevent injuries.
