Environmental Health & Safety

"It is the policy of Creighton University to provide a safe and healthy environment for all faculty, employees, students, and visitors to campus. The safety and health of our community is imperative in light of our desire for the highest possible quality of life on campus. Under no circumstances will campus safety be ignored or diminished in importance in favor of other financial or cultural priorities. Safety and health issues on campus, and in every facility, will receive a high priority and all safety and health hazards that are discovered will be addressed and corrected without delay."
