The mission of the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS), a unit within the Office of the Vice President for Administration, is to provide stewardship in the protection of human health, occupational safety and the safeguard of the environment in a manner that is consistent with regulatory mandates and the academic and research goals of the college.
We strive to promote a cultural environment of shared responsibility within the college community that will effectively identify hazards and manage the risk of injury and disease. To aid in this effort, EHS offers a comprehensive program that incorporates biological, chemical and laboratory safety, radiation safety and other occupational safety programs, as well as guidance in achieving adherence to regulatory compliance.
The EHS office serves all campuses in the Hunter College community including: 68th Street Main Campus, Hunter College Campus Schools, Brookdale Campus, Silberman School of Social Work, and the Masters of Fine Arts building. We encourage all faculty, staff and students to reach out to our office regarding any regulatory compliance issues, occupational hazards, health and safety concerns, and general environmental concerns.
