Collaboration Process for Design Team and EHS

Design Professionals have the opportunity to integrate sustainability and research safety into the design of the building, during construction, commissioning, and on-going maintenance.


By incorporating ergonomic factors, safe systems for handling hazardous materials, and designing in safety processes, UC produces healthier and more productive research programs, fewer lost time accidents, and better functioning building systems. In fact, some funding agencies look for, or require, a standard of care that may exceed the basic code compliance, and are essential to securing funding.
