INTRODUCTION

Welcome to New Mexico State University!  NMSU encourages and supports all programs that promote safety, good health, and well-being of all university faculty, staff, employees, students and visitors.

NMSU Environmental Health and Safety

EH&S is responsible for the development, oversight, and management of environmental health and safety programs that provide safe and healthy conditions for work and study, help protect the environment, and comply with applicable laws and regulations.  EH&S provides educational programs, technical assistance, and numerous health and safety services to the NMSU community.  EH&S staff also functions as consultants to Deans, Directors, Heads of Academic Departments and Administration.  The division makes health and safety investigations as necessary and upon request, assists departments in the development of safety programs and participates in health and safety training and education. 

EH&S fulfills its mission to make the campus a safe environment by implementing programs and services in eight major areas.

  1. Hazardous waste and materials management.
  2. Regulatory interpretation.
  3. Health and safety inspections/facility audits.
  4. Accident and exposure investigations.
  5. Exposure prevention/indoor air quality.
  6. Radiation licensing and permitting.
  7. Education, training and protective equipment.
  8. Safety standards and procedures

In addition, some units (e.g. the Fire and Police) have other specific requirements and responsibilities established by agencies external to the University.

Safety Committees

The formation of departmental or college safety committees is highly encouraged. Experience has shown that these committees can provide an effective means of implementing safety programs. EH&S can provide guidance and offers staff for membership to aid in the development of these committees.
