EH&S uses expertise to protect against
EH&S connected expert knowledge and service to ISU and our neighboring communities.
ISU’s Department of Residence enlisted EH&S to evaluate radon
levels across the entire residential system. ISU became the first
and only Iowa Regent University to complete radon testing across
all university housing to ensure EPA recommended radon levels
were met. Department of Residence customers and their families
can rest assured that radon exposure is not an issue.
EH&S staff completed more than
moisture, mold, asbestos
and indoor air quality investigations across campus. The Iowa Board
of Regents relied on EH&S’ experts for monitoring services at the
Iowa School for the Deaf in Council Bluffs and the Iowa Educational
Services for the Blind & Visually Impaired (previously the Iowa
Braille School) in Vinton.
Iowa industry called upon EH&S to provide safety services. Through
the Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS) – EH&S
Outreach partnership, EH&S offered training courses and health and
safety consultation services such as air monitoring, ergonomics,
instrument calibrations, and life safety plan reviews to businesses
and manufacturers across Iowa. EH&S continued eliminating public
hazards by assisting Iowa law enforcement agencies with incineration
of controlled substances and serving as the radioactive waste broker for the State of Iowa.
EH&S uses staff expertise to mitigate potential public health threats.
