McCardell Bicentennial Hall: 9am - 9:30pm

The Middlebury Sciences Environmental Health and Safety Working Group self-formed in October 2015 when Cathy Ekstrom invited the EH&S Coordinator to meet with new staff members to discuss safety improvements in Bicentennial Hall.

That first conversation generated positive energy and excitement as we realized we had a shared vision for improvement of the safety culture within the Middlebury Sciences. Since that first meeting our group has met regularly to develop and prioritize goals; including the development of new laboratory safety training programs.

The Sciences EH&S Working Group invites interested faculty, staff, and students to contact us with ideas and feedback.

Vision Statement

  • Ensure compliance with all environmental health and safety (EHS) regulations;
  • Create sustainable EHS programs (training, audit program, commitment and involvement at all levels);
  • Collaborative approach involving faculty, staff, and students;
  • Develop a culture of safety throughout all programs.
