The Environmental Health and Safety Department supports University of Houston-Clear Lake in its mission of teaching, research and community service. Our role is to identify potential safety hazards and recommend corrective action to responsible departments to ensure the safety of the university community and eliminate unnecessary risks. We also act as a liaison with regulatory agencies to ensure compliance. In this capacity, we provide internal expert solutions to issues to assure governing requirements are met.
The safety and well-being of employees and students is an utmost priority at the UHCL. Within the Safety section, you'll find access to chemical material Safety Data Sheets (SDS), various safety manuals, training, food and animal safety guidelines, and more.
Environmental protection is what we do by complying with applicable rules and regulations to minimize and properly manage wastes; put controls in place to prevent spills, stormwater contamination, and air emissions.
