Health, Safety and Environmental Management
The University of Alaska (UA) is committed to the health and safety of the university community, its visitors, and students. The University's diverse geography and stewardship mission lends itself to the further commitment of the identification and control of preventable environmental degradation.
Health, Safety and Environmental Management (HS&E) is a responsibility we all share, individually and collectively. Our success is dependent on the establishment and growth of an exceptional safety culture.
The Risk Services Department shares this responsibility and facilitates growth by providing the following services through their HS&E section:
- Strive to provide a safe and healthful environment for employment and educational site throughout the UA system.
- Limit impact on the environment from the University's activities
- Enhance awareness, knowledge and educational opportunities in health, safety and environmental management issues and provide technical assistance
- Recommend and pursue opportunities to facilitate collaborative efforts regarding health, safety and environmental management issues
