We work to systematically integrate environmental health and safety into university activities systemwide.

The University of California is committed to achieving excellence in providing a healthful and safe working environment, and to supporting environmentally sound practices. All university activities are to be conducted in a manner that ensures the protection of students, faculty, staff, visitors, the public, property, and the environment. The university community must work together towards the goal of preventing all workplace injuries and illnesses, environmental incidents, and property losses or damage.
