The Fire & Life Safety program at OSU seeks to protect the safety of people and property across the University. All OSU faculty, staff, and students are exposed to unsafe conditions if fire prevention is not properly managed. Additionally, approximately 8 million square feet of Corvallis campus buildings are exposed to greater loss without a viable Fire & Life Safety program. Programs and policies are implemented to ensure the Oregon Fire and Building codes are complied with, as well as both federal and state OSHA codes. Program implementation requires daily effort from EH&S staff and work consists of routine and construction inspections, training of personnel, and equipment maintenance and installation.
