Committees Responsibilities

The University Environmental Health and Safety Committees serve a vital purpose at UAH. They are charged with important responsibilities for protecting the lives and well-being of students, faculty, staff, administration, and visitors. In addition, the UAH Safety Committees also assist in preventing damage or loss to University-owned property and the environment. 

The committees are responsible for formulating, implementing, and monitoring the University’s procedures for safety and environmental health. The committees will make recommendations to the administration regarding new and existing University health and safety procedures.  The committees also serve as a forum for the discussion of topics of interest and concern. The members of the committee act as a liaison between the committee and the departments they represent.
