A brief description of the key components of the custom OHSMS:

EMU's EHS follows many of the OHSMS type requirements in how health and safety are addressed on campus. ISO and OHSAS compliance is most often seen in the industry in conjunction with quality standards and is much less prevalent in higher education. EMU complies with MIOSHA, EGLE, NRC and other state and federal regulations as required. We follow a standard format for our safety protocols and update them when regulations change or processes change for the University.
