Environmental Health and Safety
Our mission is to ensure that LSUHSC-NO students, faculty, staff, and visitors have a safe workplace by providing them with the service and knowledge necessary for their protection. In addition, we are committed to protecting the local community and environment from any potential hazards generated by university activities by ensuring that our students, faculty, staff, and visitors are informed and knowledgeable.
To assure compliance with all occupational and environmental rules and regulations , our office maintains a good working relationship with a multitude of agencies and groups that regulate or control biomedical research. Through partnerships with LSUHSC-NO researchers, faculty and staff, EH&S fosters working relationships which allow us to keep the University community aware of requirements and to provide an audit trail of activities which demonstrates compliance to the regulators.
