Message from the Director

Welcome to the EHS web page! On behalf of the entire EHS staff, I want to wish you a happy, healthful, and safe experience at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. It is our mission to protect UNL's human resources and preserve the environment. To that end, we are dedicated to creating a partnership with the campus community and providing services to assist employees in integrating safety and compliance into their workplace culture and behavior.

As you explore the EHS web page, you will find that we offer a variety of services to the campus involving radiation safety, occupational safety, biosafety, environmental protection, safety and compliance training, and outreach initiatives. Please contact our office if we can be of service to you or if you have suggestions on how we might serve you better.
