Health and Safety at UNH
The UNH Department of Music makes available to students, faculty, and staff information about health and safety. In the music office we keep a binder on hearing health and safety. This information is also available here. We will hold our first annual special topics meeting on musician health in Johnson Theatre on Thursday, January 31 at 1pm.
The UNH Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) works to assure safe and healthful environments for all segments of the campus population through programs of information and education, review and monitoring, technical consultation and provision of direct services. OEHS is also responsible for developing programs to ensure compliance with applicable state and federal health, safety and environmental regulations, and campus policies on environmental health and safety. Areas of responsibility include hazardous materials, environmental management as well as injury and illness prevention as highlighted in the USNH Policy on Environmental Health and Safety. The protection of human health, and compliance with applicable regulations are essential conditions for the successful operation of research, conduct of instruction, and provision of public service by the University.

UNH has also adopted the Healthy UNH initiative. This is a campus-wide initiative that encourages faculty, staff, and students to improve their health while simultaneously decreasing health care costs. Its goal is to make UNH the healthiest campus community in the country by 2020. Healthy UNH has identified major health issues that need to be addressed, including rising rates of chronic disease; the need for better information about resources to promote health; evidence of increasing rates of stress, anxiety, and other mental health issues; and spiraling health care costs. Additional information on the initiative can be found here.
