Occupational Health & Safety Program

Facilities employees direct their coworker into position over an iron structure in preparation for the university event FIRE UP!, the burning of the UTRGV letters.The Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Program partners with facilities, police and all other personnel at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) to provide safe working conditions, prevent industrial accidents, bring awareness to safety through training and to ensure that precautions are taken to ensure a workplace that is "free from recognizable hazards." Our goal is to simply make sure you leave at the end of the day, as healthy as when you arrived.
