At the Office of Environmental Health & Safety, we're committed to supporting safe and healthy academic exploration by Bucknell University students, faculty, staff and visitors.
By working closely with departments across campus, we help protect the University community from injury and illness. Our focus is on proactively identifying workplace hazards and safely managing these risks through training, assistance, oversight and the use of personal protective equipment.
Hazardous materials are a necessary part of Bucknell research. This includes hazardous chemicals, infectious materials and radioactive materials. We follow federal, state and Bucknell University regulations to ensure the proper handling, transportation and disposal of these materials.
In addition, our team:
- Works with students and faculty to address any issues they may have regarding working safely in laboratories.
- Supports our fellow employees with any workplace safety issues and concerns.
- Ensures that Bucknell meets state and federal regulations regarding safety and the environment.
Please reach out to the Environmental Health & Safety team at any time with questions or concerns.
