Protecting Public


EH&S uses expertise to protect against

unseen hazards.

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.
