Elemental mercury poses a unique hazard to human health and the environment. Mercury disposal and treatment methods can be costly. EHSS is encouraging labs to review their inventory of elemental mercury, mercury containing equipment or mercury thermometers and dispose of unneeded materials with EHSS during the month of December. Please contact EHSS’s Hazardous Waste group at 315.443.9132 or http://ehss.syr.edu/about/request-for-service/ to schedule a pick up.
EHSS is excited to launch its new website! Our main goal in redesigning this website was to provide the University community with easy to find, concise information on the safety and compliance programs managed by EHSS. A new feature on the website is our Request for Service Form which provides a simple way to request services or seek guidance and assistance from EHSS staff. Similarly, EHSS’ Training webpage offers a single Training Registration Form to register for any of the safety and compliance trainings offered by EHSS. Thank you for checking out our new website and we welcome your feedback!
