Title: Evaluation of environmental, health and safety management at small colleges
Author: Rippe, Ann
Abstract: Environmental, health and safety management approaches and practices at small colleges are investigated. Awareness of environmental, health and safety initiatives among colleges is also investigated. Surveys were distributed to twelve colleges that accepted an invitation to participate in this study. The colleges were divided into two groups: an experimental group that consisted of small colleges that had made an envirpnmental claim or commitment and a control group that consisted of small colleges that were not known to have made such a claim or commitment. The results did not reveal a significant difference between the experimental and control group colleges that returned the survey. Responses indicated a lack of awareness of environmental, health and safety initiatives in academia, although the colleges that returned the survey did appear to be aware of basic regulatory requirements related to chemical use and hazardous waste management.
