The UC EH&S employees who comprise the various professional disciplines within EH&S at the campuses and medical centers collaborate together in workgroups.

The goal of the workgroups is to share information, collaborate on the development of compliance tools and programs, conserve limited resources and, thus, achieve a more consistent and effective means of reducing the risk of injuries, property losses and adverse regulatory actions.

The workgroups are organized with a rotating chairman position, liaison from the EH&S Directors and convene monthly conference calls as well as an annual in-person meeting.

Materials related to each workgroup are provided below.
