The UL Lafayette Office of Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) is tasked with running the University's environmental, health, and safety program; employee and staff safety training; all emergency procedures plans; and fire safety operating systems, including fire alarms, sprinkler systems, fire extinguishers, and hood, kitchen and research bio-safety cabinet suppression systems. It is also tasked with ensuring the safety operation of all fume hoods and elevators on the campus of UL Lafayette.
In addition to the above listed tasks, the EH&S Office monitors all hazardous materials on campus through an interdepartmental system called Cameo. A complete (confidential) inventory of locations, quantities, and storage containers of all hazardous chemicals on campus is constantly updated, examined and reported through the EH&S office. Safety Data Sheets are also found in this system for the convenience of the faculty & staff. All hazardous material disposal is arranged and managed by the EH&S office, as well.
All regulatory and state required safety training is conducted in-house through the EH&S office. Using state of the art equipment and hands-on simulation, our staff is completely trained on how to conduct work safely and efficiently.
