Occupational Safety

The University of New Hampshire is firmly committed to providing a safe and healthy work environment for all of its employees. This is essential for UNH to meet its mission of instruction, research, and public service. To achieve this goal, UNH is committed to meeting its obligations by complying with the applicable Federal and State of New Hampshire regulations governing employee health and safety.

UNH created an Occupational Safety Committee (OSC) to ensure that all students, faculty, staff, and visitors are provided a safe environment on campus. This committee serves as an advisory group concerned with safety, health, and environmental protection. Its purpose is to assist in the identification and control of workplace hazards. The OSC meets on a quarterly basis and makes recommendations to the UNH Environmental Health and Safety Committee for addressing hazards and improving safety.
