Occupational Safety & Health

occupational health & safety

The College's Occupational Safety and Health Program (OSHP) encompasses a number of OSHA's General Industry as well as some Construction Standards (29 CFR 1910, 20 CFR 1926). A range of occupational hygiene services, written policies and procedures, training and periodic inspections form the basis of our program. Our OSHP is integrated into the broader EHS program at Dartmouth through coordination with our Chemical and Radiation Safety Programs and our Hazardous Waste Management, Minimization and Disposal Program.

For specific questions or to learn more about our Occupational Safety and Health Program, please email the Office of Environmental Health and Safety.

Through OSHP, the College maintains an Alliance agreement with the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) to provide information on health and safety topics to contractors working on campus and in the Upper Valley.
