EH&S released newly revised Reproductive Hazard Guidelines to inform employees, students, and volunteers about potential reproductive and developmental hazards, and safe work conditions and practices in their work environment.
Individuals who are pregnant or considering becoming pregnant should be aware of the risks associated with potential exposures to biological, chemical, radiological, and other hazardous materials during pregnancy.
The Respirable Crystalline Silica Safety Manual outlines the responsibilities of University units, personnel and the Environmental Health & Safety Department (EH&S) to protect personnel from occupational respirable crystalline silica exposure. This document also contains guidelines and procedures for exposure control, respiratory protection, and medical evaluations.
Use extra caution while walking at University locations during wet and icy weather. Check the UW Alert Blog and the Snow Removal Progress Map (as appropriate) to check conditions before arriving on the Seattle campus.
