Environmental Health and Safety

The Environmental Health and Safety Department's mission is to develop and implement programs that will ensure RISD's compliance with regulations. RISD has set the goal of becoming a world-class leader of EH&S issues in the arts. To become recognized as such, our programs and facilities must become models for environmental stewardship. The administration supports, and all at RISD should embrace, the concept of protecting our environment and ensuring safe working conditions.

We provide updated MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) for our students, faculty, and staff which can be found at this link.

At RISD there's nothing unusual about suddenly finding a doorknob on a tree trunk, shown here across from Carr House,
the charming home of Student Life offices and the student-run Carr Haus Café.
