There are many shops on the main campus and at research and field stations that conduct work in support of research and maintenance activities. Classic examples include machine, wood, and repair shops. However, a shop at OSU is any area that has equipment, processes, or activities of an industrial nature. Each type of shop presents specific safety hazards, which if not properly identified and addressed, can lead to injury. The EHS Shop Safety Program provides inspections and recommendations to shops for the hazards present. EHS will work with shop personnel to help ensure appropriate Safety programs and training are in place to protect workers from hazards they could encounter as part of their work assignments.
