Oberlin College is committed to providing a safe and healthy campus environment. The health and safety of all faculty, staff, and students, the visiting public, and members of the neighboring community is among its highest priorities. In support of its commitment, the college has established an Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) which works with the Facilities Operations Division and the Facilities Planning and Construction (FP&C) area to implement environmental and occupational health and safety programs to ensure compliance with all relevant governmental laws and regulations.
