Environmental Health + Safety

The EH+S Department’s mission is to develop and implement programs that will ensure RISD’s compliance with environmental, health and safety regulations. RISD has set the goal of becoming a world-class leader of EH+S issues in the arts. To become recognized as such, our programs and facilities must become models for environmental stewardship. The administration supports, and all at RISD should embrace, the concept of protecting our environment and ensuring safe working conditions.

All artistic installations must be accompanied by a completed Installation Site Permit.
