It is the mission of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S), to provide an environment conducive to a healthy and safe learning experience, to protect Kutztown University's human resources and preserve the environment. To that end, EH&S is dedicated to creating a partnership with the campus community and providing services to assist the campus constituency in integrating safety and compliance into their workplace/classroom culture and behavior.

The Office of Environmental, Health and Safety is obligated to ensure that Kutztown University is in compliance with those Commonwealth and Federal regulations that impact on Health, Life Safety and the Environment.  This includes interaction with Commonwealth Agencies such as the Department of Environmental Protection, Labor & Industry, the Emergency Management Agency, Department of Health and the Department of Transportation.  At the Federal level, agencies include the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. 

Further, EH & S endeavors to provide comprehensive environmental, health and safety services for the University community by developing and administering policies and procedures that prevent personal injuries and illnesses, as well as meeting regulatory requirements in the areas of occupational safety, fire prevention and protection and hazardous materials management, thereby supporting the University's mission.
