Occupational Health and Safety Practices
Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) is responsible for occupational health and safety practices and strives to reduce work-related accidents and injuries through a formal injury and illness prevention plan, in accordance with Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) regulations.
The program is built on the premise that each employee and student has the responsibility to:
- Plan each job to assure proper safety equipment is available and used
- Know what actions to take in the event of emergencies
- Report any injuries or potential injuries and any unsafe conditions
Additional services include helping UNO administrators and staff protect UNO property and ensure a safe environment for visitors, students, and staff.
EHS does this by:
- Identifying safety hazards
- Consulting with departments to correct and prevent safety hazard deficiencies, unsafe conditions, and acts
- Providing occupational and personal safety education and information
