UNLV employs best practices with respect to indoor air quality by following the design standards for each building. UNLV Facilities Management ensures adequate ventilation by utilizing fresh air and CO2 sensor monitoring as set forth by the design engineer.
As part of Risk Management & Safety, the OSH (Occupational Safety & Health) function administers the requirements of Federal and State OSHA programs with regard to compliance, investigation and training. Indoor air quality, mold, and other health and safety issues brought to the attention of OSH are thoroughly investigated by this function. As a means of facilitating these responsibilities, OSH coordinates and participates on the following committees:
RMS/FM Safety Committee, SLC Dental School Safety Committee, T&M/SBS Safety Committee.
The OSH function also conducts audits and building inspections to determine compliance with OSHA regulations and to make certain that safe work practices are followed.
Safety Training is provided to UNLV personnel via online and classroom training courses. There are more than 50 different training classes.
