Campus Safety Reviews

Campus Safety conducts reviews concerning fire, life, occupational safety, and industrial hygiene. Our goal is to prevent injury and loss of life and property. Reviewing is conducted on most campus buildings, machine shops, and industrial type facilities. High-risk buildings are completed yearly, with other types of facilities on an as needed basis. Campus safety also conducts routine inspections for contracted construction projects that occur on campus to ensure site safety. Periodic reviews and assessments are conducted by our industrial hygiene staff for issues involving mold, asbestos, air quality, noise, and specific health irritants.
