Occupational Safety

Kennesaw State University (KSU) is committed to achieving and sustaining safe work places for all its staff, faculty, and contractors. Occupational Safety and Health is a vital pillar in the support function of our Environmental Health and Safety team. Our success is dependent upon cooperative relations between the EHS team and our core customer base. Whether it is working at heights, electrical safety, confined space entry, basic hand tools or ladder use, we aim to ensure that the safest work places possible are maintained. We accomplish this through effective training, workplace inspections, and hazard analysis with abatement methodologies. At a minimum, KSU will comply with applicable OSHA Standards as well as other industry and consensus standards incorporated by references such as: NFPA, ANSI, ASME, NIOSH, etc.
