Environmental Health and Safety


The Environmental Manager for the Department is Kelly Greene. Her responsibilities include university compliance with the various environmental protection laws including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Toxic Substance Control Act, and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. Topics covered by these laws include hazardous waste management, underground and aboveground storage tanks, spill response, the University air permit, and EPA Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Plans. She is assisted by Justin Millette, Hazardous Waste Technician, who operates the hazardous materials recycling program as well as the hazardous and medical waste disposal programs.

While the Environmental Management section keeps track of these regulations to ensure the University's compliance, Supervisors and Principal Investigators are responsible for being aware of these regulations and to ensure they, their employees and students comply with the regulations.See the Training for on-line classes.
