Accident Prevention

Preventing Injury

Our goal at EHS is to prevent these from happening. Achieving this goal not only avoids injury and illness but simply helps people feel better while working and at the end of the day.  EHS is always looking for ways to better serve the safety needs of the University. If you have safety concerns or would like to request additional information please contact us at (360) 650-3064 or at ehs@wwu.edu. Working together we can do a better job of protecting you and your coworkers.
