EHST Safety Tip of the Month

The October safety tip brought to you by the Environmental Health & Safety Team:

October usually brings cooler fall weather which can be a welcome break from the dog days of summer, but we can also see a rise in the number of respiratory illness cases as people tend to stay indoors more often.

Enteroviruses are just one of the many common causes of respiratory illness. One less common virus, EV-D68, has gotten some well-deserved bad publicity lately. Click HERE to read more to read about symptoms and ways to project yourself and others from enterovirus infections.

The September safety tip brought to you by the Environmental Health & Safety Team:  September is designated as National Campus Safety Awareness Month. Because of that, we would like to take this opportunity to urge everyone to take a few minutes and think about how they would answer this question: “If an emergency happens while I’m on campus, what would I do?”
Emergencies can take many different forms, but one thing is for certain; the time to figure out what you should be doing during an emergency is not when it’s occurring.  Click HERE to read more and find out what you can do now to prepare for an emergency!
