Environmental Health and Safety at SUNY Plattsburgh

The Environmental Health and Safety department is committed to regulatory compliance, minimizing environmental impacts, preventing occupational injuries, responding to community concerns and overall protecting the well being of each individual on campus.

Our environmental management systems include a cloud-based chemical inventory system, a cloud-based asbestos management program, a tablet based laboratory, studio and shop inspections program, a server-based accident/incident tracking program and an employee training tracking program.

We also use other Access databases for optimal collection, storage and utilization of fire, recycling, job safety analysis and departmental data.  the use of technology helps us make the best use of our resources and keeps us responsive to the ever-changing regulatory climate.

Environmental Management Systems

The Environmental Health and Safety Department is in the process of developing and implementing an Environmental Management System. A key element of this system is to provide the appropriate training to all employees and students to ensure competence and awareness of our environmental policies and procedures, the significant environmental impacts of their work or activities, their roles and responsibilities in support of our environmental management system, and the potential consequences of departure from specified procedures. As objectives and targets are identified and programs established to achieve them, environmental performance will be measured by monitoring key activities and tracking performance for continual improvement.
