MIT has implemented a comprehensive and integrated Environment, Health, and Safety Management System that is sustainable for the long term within our academic research setting. A highly collaborative effort that draws on the leadership and expertise of faculty, researchers, students, administrators, and staff, the EHS Management System shapes how all members of the MIT community view their environmental, health, and safety responsibilities; carry out MIT's comprehensive and integrated environmental commitment in their day-to-day activities; and assess MIT's performance against our goals.
The management system has been designed to address three interdependent goals:
- Supporting the independence of research and teaching while continuously improving MIT's performance in meeting and exceeding regulatory requirements and achieving high standards for environmental sustainability and health and safety.
- Reflecting and facilitating MIT's broad commitment to environmental excellence and stewardship.
- Supporting MIT's comprehensive and integrated approach to managing EHS performance.
