Environmental Health and Safety
Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) was established to foster a place of employment and learning which is free as possible from hazards that could cause harm to the students, faculty, staff, visitors or surrounding environment.
EH&S offers a variety of online, instructor-led, and specialty safety classes for UTEP staff, faculty, and students. EH&S also offers Scieshield, to campus laboratories. Scieshield is a lab specific web portal that allows labortory managers and P.I.s to organize their safety information.
EH&S makes emergency procedures available to UTEP Students as a quick reference. Students should review these to be familiar and prepared, should an emergency occur. Student should always contact their professor, supervisor or EH&S with any safety questions or concerns.
