Environmental Health And Safety

Environmental Health & Safety assists the university community in providing and maintaining a safe work environment for students, faculty, staff, contractors, and visitors. The EHS mission also encompasses responsibilities of protecting the local community and environment from potential hazards generated by university activities.

EHS Promotes Stormwater Pollution Prevention

“Don’t Strain the Drain” was the EHS message conveyed at the annual CSULB Earth Day Mixer in April.  EHS staff were available in the beautiful setting of the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Gardens to provide information and spread awareness of the effects of stormwater pollution and preventative measures the public can perform to curb illegal and unnecessary discharges to local waterways.
