Hazard Communication Program

Lewis & Clark is committed to protecting the safety and health of all community members working in proximity to hazardous materials.  It is their fundamental right to be accurately informed as to the hazards present, the degree of risk of exposure, and the appropriate control measures necessary to avoid these exposures.

2. Hazardous Waste Policy

Lewis & Clark strives to support the preservation of Oregon’s natural environment.  All hazardous waste generated in the course of educational and operational activities of Lewis & Clark are accumulated, stored, and disposed in a manner which avoids discharge to the environment and which meets federal, state, and local regulatory requirements.  No hazardous wastes shall be accumulated, stored, or removed from Lewis & Clark premises without prior notification of the Occupational Health and Safety Manager. For more information, Download the Hazardous Waste Program. 


Lewis & Clark encourages its employees to work comfortably and safely when using computers.  It is recognized that assuming prolonged postures that depart from the norms of good, body neutral posture is likely to have deleterious results.  Since these are often not readily apparent to the subject employees themselves, ergonomic assistance and assessment is provided.  Contact the Occupational Health and Safety Manager to schedule an assistance visit.
