Use of posters in areas where faculty, staff, students, and visitors congregate, work, or simply pass through can be a great educational opportunity.  Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) has developed the following posters to remind and inform you about safe work practice controls and best practices regarding research, worker, environmental and campus life safety.  The posters also provide information about waste and how to properly dispose of it to maintain the integrity of our health and environment.

If you are interested in a poster, contact your EHS representative at (734) 647-1143 with your request and campus mail address; and we will get it out to you.  Suggestions for improvement or new posters are always welcome.
