Compliance: The foundation of the EMS program is achieving and maintaining compliance with laws, regulations, and other requirements and obligations. Where practical, we will strive to exceed and go beyond compliance with laws and regulations.
Stewardship: Administration, faculty, staff, and students are empowered to identify the significant environmental aspects of our operations and design and implement programs to minimize impacts on human health and the environment on campus and in the community.
Training: Working with established training programs, each supervisor must take the initiative to train and/or manage the training of the employees and students under his/her supervision in safe work practices.
Sustainability – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Efforts will be made to use processes, practices, materials, or products that avoid or reduce pollution. This may include process changes, efficient use of resources, material substitutions, and recycling.
Audit and Improve Accountability: Internal staff and/or outside parties will conduct periodic audits and management reviews of the EMS to identify areas for improvement. Corrective action will be taken to address recommendations. As objectives and targets are met, new goals will be established in order to continuously improve environmental performance.
Documentation and Record: We will continue to document and record all monitoring of all protocols.
