The Division of Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) partners with Augusta University to promote safety services that support the clinical, teaching, and research missions on campus. 

We are responsible for a campus-wide effort to ensure Augusta University complies with local, state, and federal health and safety rules and regulations to provide a safe environment for work, study, research, and patient care.  For more on our commitment to our institution, please see the Environmental Compliance Statement. For additional information and help, contact the EHS staff of the specific office you are interested in.
