Executive EH&S Committee
The Executive EH&S Committee provides oversight and guidance to the Environmental Health and Safety Office. The Committee is made up of leadership within the College of Agriculture. They discharge their responsibilities by being actively engaged in the Executive EH&S Committee and supportive of ongoing EH&S risk reduction efforts. The Committee's charter describes the roles and responsibilities of the membership. Their work flow is designed to maximize the attention given to high risk conditions and practices within the College.
Departmental EH&S Committees
Each department is encouraged to establish an EH&S committee. The purpose of forming this committee is to address the unique needs of the department based on risks and exposures inherent in the activities and services they provide. Committee members should be selected to represent the interests of administration, faculty, staff and students. The EH&S Office will coordinate training to ensure that committee members have the information and skills necessary to fulfill their responsibilities.
Each departmental committee should establish EH&S objectives and deadlines for meeting those objectives. The objectives should be based on accident and incident history, regulations, known hazards, industry standards, expressed concerns of employees, self-inspections, and recommendations of the executive safety advisory committee. The EH&S Office will assist the departmental committees in this process.
