Safety starts with U.

The University of Utah is committed to improving its culture of safety across all areas of campus, including in research laboratories. Effective May 1, 2019, the offices of Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) and Radiation Safety (RSO) were integrated into one departmental unit renamed the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). The merger will take advantage of the strengths of both units and will increase efficiency, enhance services and improve enforcement ability of lab safety inspectors.

Fred A. Monette has been appointed as interim executive director of EHS. Monette currently serves as the director of RSO and is a board-certified health physicist who brings over 25 years of experience in radiation protection. Anyone who has questions, concerns or feedback about lab safety should submit those to
