Environmental Health and Safety
Environmental Health and Safety assists the campus in providing a safe and healthful workplace through the development and implementation of programs which minimize the risk of occupationally related injury or illness. Also, EH&S develops and implements programs to ensure the safe use, handling and storage of hazardous materials and appropriate and compliant disposal of hazardous wastes. These are accomplished through employee training programs, procedures and policies, and compliance surveys.
PolyAlert Campus Emergency Notification System
The PolyAlert Emergency Notification System is a text messaging service that will distribute brief messages in situations posing imminent physical threats to the campus community. By using Short Messaging System (SMS) technology, the system can convey messages to registered mobile phones, Blackberries, wireless PDAs, smart phones and satellite phones.
You must have your cell phone registered to receive these emergency text message notifications. Either click on the logo below or go to your My Calpoly Portal http://my.calpoly.edu and click on the Personal Info tab to register.
New Online MSDS System
Environmental Health & Safety subscribes to MSDSOnline, an online database to provide Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for hazardous materials used on campus. Campus users can access the site at: http://hq.msdsonline.com/csuedusl/Search/Default.aspx . No login or special access codes are required, if accessed from a campus computer. Cal OSHA allows this online system to replace our paper MSDS files as long as hazardous materials users have access to a computer with the link to the MSDSOnline in the immediate vicinity of the hazmat use.
