Welcome to EHS

Extension cords are only to be used on a temporary basis.  Recent events have prompted the EHS Director to remind the Campus Community about proper use of extension cords (see memo at link below.)   Both the Fire Code and the Electrial Code allow for extension cords in specific circumstances.  Any extension cord showing any damage or wear should be removed/replaced immediately.  To learn more about extension cord hazards, what actions you can take when you find these hazards, and to help you understand the limitations of extension cords, please contact the Department of Environmental Health and Safety at 898-5126.

Hoverboard Fire Safety

The Department of Environmental Health and Safety would like to remind the Campus community of the importance of Hoverboard Fire Safety. Recent fire incidents related to Hoverboards have resulted in the Office of the State Fire Marshal releasing an Information Bulletin specific to Hoverboard Safety.  The Bulletin contains safety information related to the purchase of Hoverboards, their use, charging methods, as well as indicators of safety problems that could lead to fire.

For more information on Hoverboard Safety, please see the State Fire Marshal Information Bulletin and the Consumer Product Safety Commission Statement
