Safety and Health


The Office of Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) at the University of Central Missouri works to provide a safe and healthy learning and working environment for UCM students, faculty, staff and visitors. EHS work closely with our campus community to ensure potential hazards are identified and eliminated.   The EHS Team is comprised of fulltime professionals and EHS Student Techs. Together they help UCM comply with all federal, state and local regulations. EHS provides guidance regarding safety, health, environmental and emergency preparedness issues at UCM.


In case of an emergency, please contact Public Safety 24 hours a day / 7 days a week @ 660-543-4123.  Everyone has a role in Campus Safety.   If you see something, say something.
