FMD - Office of Environmental Health & Safety (OEHS)
The primary mission of the Office
of Environmental Health & Safety (OEHS) is to advance and
support a safe and healthful environment at VCU and VCUHSA (VCU
Health Systems Authority). OEHS works to meet this goal through
surveys, consultation, teaching, advising and environmental
monitoring. As the University's liaison, OEHS works with outside
agencies and organizations to address all applicable standards.
OEHS is divided into three sections: Radiation Safety,
Chemical/Biological Safety, and Fire and Occupational Safety.
OEHS offices are located on both campuses and provide emergency
response 24-hours a day. The Safety Awareness Program and
Handbook for New Employees and the VCU Safety Manual offer more
detailed information about the office and its services.
