Construction Safety Program
The Office of Environmental Health, Safety, and Risk Management's Construction Safety Program is designed to minimize risks and protect the UTSA community as the University continues to grow. This is achieved through safety training, construction site inspections, and environmental monitoring. The Construction Safety Program is administered by the Environmental Protection & Construction Safety Division (EPCSD).
Construction Site Inspections
To ensure contractors are following safety standards and industry best practices, our team regularly conducts inspections of the working conditions at on-campus construction sites. We assess these sites to ensure that appropriate equipment and procedures are in use, in order to protect those at the worksite as well surrounding areas.
Our team provides the following training courses for UTSA staff and faculty:
North Paseo Building - October 2013
