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.

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.
