Occupational Health and Safety


Augusta University is concerned about the safety and welfare of its faculty, staff and students, and contractors. We are committed to alerting individuals to potential work-related health risks and counseling them on methods to avoid workplace hazards through a comprehensive occupational health and safety program.

Participation is mandatory for the following groups:

  • Veterinary care and animal husbandry staff
  • Faculty, students and staff listed on approved animal protocols
  • Members of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

New personnel should follow the steps outlined on the Animal User Clearance page.

Annual renewal is required to maintain your clearance. To renew, navigate to the Occupational Health Screening Renewal Questionnaire.

Contractors should follow the steps outlined on the Contractor Access page.
