Safety

The Safety program focuses on the identification, evaluation, and control of hazards in the work place. It is inherently broad in its scope covering items such as work area safety surveys, accident/incident investigations, electrical safety, indoor air quality, ergonomics, hand and power tool safety, personal protective equipment, injury prevention plans, construction safety, chemical and noise exposure assessments, radiation safety, respiratory protection, back/lifting safety, safety training and numerous other related topics. EHS identifies the applicable regulatory requirements, develops compliance programs to meet the requirements, and then provides consultative direction and technical support to departments to implement the safety programs pertinent to their department.
