The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established rules and regulations designed to protect the health and safety of American workers. These rules have been codified into federal law, and Connecticut College has developed policies to meet the requirements of those laws.

If you become aware of a hazardous situation, don't assume that "someone else will take care of it." Notify the Office of Environmental Health & Safety, or a member of the Connecticut College EH&S Committee members of the safety concern, so that it can investigated and addressed.
