Services


EHSO provides comprehensive environmental and occupational health and safety support services to the Emory Enterprise. EHSO serves as a function of risk management with an aim of protecting people, environment and reputation. To accomplish its mission, EHSO is organized into seven program areas: Environmental Programs, Industrial Hygiene, Occupational Safety, Radiation Safety, Research Safety, Training and Outreach, and Primate Center. Although the programs are organized into distinct units, EHSO takes a cross-functional approach in providing environmental, health and safety support and services as it engages with its various customers and stakeholders which include primarily researchers, their laboratories and clinics; in addition to Academia, Campus Services and Emory Healthcare.

EHSO incorporates an integrated ISO-based management system (ISO 14001, ISO 35001 and ISO 45001) approach to its internal planning, operations and performance assessment. It is a proven framework for managing and continually improving our policies, processes and procedures.
