Policies are developed through examination of program guidelines, codes and standards, and through collaboration with the laboratory safety committee. All faculty, students, and staff are expected to comply with applicable Environmental Health & Safety rules, as well as applicable local, state, and federal laws.

Overarching Health and Safety Policies are located in Chapter 7 of the Business Policy and Procedure Manual. Of particular note is the first policy (7:001) granting EHS the authority to set campus policy in regards to health and safety.

Policies created by EHS are found within the respective Program Area (see gold navigation bar). A project to compile these policies under the Policies link in the gold navigation bar was started in May 2022 to provide easier access to the campus.
