Environmental and Occupational Health (EOH) and Occupational Medicine help assure campus spaces are safe and healthy for those who learn, live, work and visit.
Environmental Health has state-delegated authority for food, lodging, pools, and youth camps, and has shared regulatory responsibilities for monitoring water and indoor air.
Occupational Health supports research, academic and operational compliance through exposure assessment, personal protective equipment (PPE) use, training, and ergonomics.
Occupational Medicine provides specific patient care, health surveillance services, and medical response plans for employees and students exposed to hazards in campus facilities on the job or at school.
EOH is an organizational unit of Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S) housed at UHS. Close partners include UHS, Research Animal Resource Center (RARC) and Risk Management. EOH also convenes the campus Occupational Health Committee.
