What We Do

The Office of Environmental Health and Safety is responsible for tracking developments in environmental, health, and safety laws and regulations and determining, with the assistance of University legal counsel, requirements that apply to staff, faculty, students, and Biola’s campus. Requirements are met through the development of programs by EHS and relevant committees for implementation by campus departments as well as through direct services, consultation, and compliance assistance provided by EHS.

EHS is responsible for providing information to the campus community, through established communication channels on programs, services, regulatory impact, and compliance requirements.
