What is an EHSMS?

An EHSMS is a framework for the development, communication, and management of safe, healthy, and environmentally responsible activities. The university is committed to an EHSMS that supports preventative and responsive attitudes and behaviors at all levels of management, supervision and staffing.

The cornerstone of the university's EHSMS is the Environment, Health & Safety Policy. "Assignments of accountabilities" establish the EHSMS framework, while procedures and support documents (such as manuals, guidelines, and informational documents) provide the details.
