Western Connecticut State University's

Office of Environmental Health and Safety

At EHS we are dedicated to keeping our community healthy and safe. We support all educational activities, in the classroom, the laboratory and the studio, while minimizing our environmental impact.

We provide a wide variety of services including administration of life safety, fire notification and protection systems, management of hazardous materials and waste, evaluation of ergonomic inquiries, assessment of indoor air quality and industrial hygiene concerns and design and delivery of EHS education and training programs. Because of the nature of our business, we are also intimately involved with emergency management and response.

We share our knowledge and expertise not just with the students, faculty and staff that comprise our University community, but we also provide outreach programs to the local High Schools and Emergency Service providers.
