Environmental Health & Safety

The Department of Public Safety at Butler University is charged with ensuring a safe environment for faculty, staff, students and visitors. The Environmental Health & Safety Specialist and Environmental Programs Coordinator both work to ensure that Butler is in compliance with local, state and federal laws. This office works with staff and faculty to train, research, and audit to reduce university risks associated with OSHA and EPA regulations.

The Environmental Programs Coordinator is responsible for proper disposal of chemical and biological waste generated on campus. In addition to that important duty, the coordinator samples water and air to ensure a safe environment.
