Safety Committees

Departments are encouraged to form safety committees to serve as independent advocates for the safety of staff, faculty, students, and visitors. EH&S is your university resource to promote safe work practices, protect health and minimize impacts on the environment.

For help in establishing your departmental safety committee, contact EH&S at 294-5359.

A safety committee works with administration, researchers, staff, and students to:

  • Implement university safety policies
  • Identify departmental hazards
  • Plan emergency preparedness
  • Cultivate an attitude of safety at Iowa State
