This standard helps organizations minimize their environmental impact and comply with applicable laws, regulations and other environmentally-oriented requirements. The standard also ensures continuous improvement of the university’s overall environmental program.
In August 2002, EH&S became certified to the ISO 14001 standard and was the second
academic health and safety program in the US to achieve this distinction. In 2015,
the standard was completely revised and EH&S was certified to the new standards.
In 2018, the International Standards Organization (ISO) established a new standard for Occupational Health and Safety. EH&S adopted the new standard in 2018 and is registered to the standard.
