The purpose of Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) is to promote environmental stewardship, safety and health by working cooperatively with the entire campus community. The primary goal is to prevent or minimize injuries and illnesses through a control of potential hazards arising from Clayton State University activities.
The Public Employee Hazardous Chemical Protection and Right to Know Act of 1988 was enacted by the State of Georgia to ensure worker protection from hazardous chemicals that may be encountered in the workplace. Employees were provided with information and training for handling, storing, and disposing of hazardous chemicals in their work areas.
All Clayton State University employees are required to take an online Right to Know training program through their employee orientation process. The online training program is designed to educate USG employees on the importance and benefits of properly recognizing and safely working with hazardous materials.
Employees can receive this online training by going to:
OSHA training site for basic first aid; pesticide handling; back injury prevention forklift and tractor safety; protective clothing
