Enterprise Risk Management and Environmental Health & Safety

Our mission is to provide excellent enterprise risk management and environmental health and safety support services to the College community through partnerships and shared responsibility with students, faculty, staff, and external stakeholders.

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM)

Organizations are subject to a number of risks, including strategic, financial, operational, compliance, and reputational risks.

ERM is a formal and continuous process designed to identify, assess, prioritize, and manage all risks and opportunities to ensure organizational goals and objectives are met.

We have developed a formalized ERM Program and approach to managing risk, designed to:

  • Create a culture of risk awareness among responsible stakeholders.
  • Promote and integrate principled decision making.
  • Establish acceptable risks in all endeavors.

Environmental Health & Safety (EHS)

EHS develops, implements and oversees environmental, health, and safety programs at all FLCC facilities to positively impact the working and learning environment.

EHS programs include, but are not limited to:

  • Automated External Defibrillators
  • Fire Safety and Fire Drills
  • Chemical Hygiene and Lab Safety
  • Hazardous Waste
  • Emergency Spill Response
  • Office Ergonomics
  • Bloodborne Pathogens
  • Regulated Medical Waste
  • Asbestos Management
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Confined Spaces
  • Respiratory Protection
  • All EHS associated training

We encourage all faculty, staff, and students to reach out to our office regarding regulatory compliance issues, occupational health and hazards, and general environmental concerns.

Hazardous Conditions

To report an emergency, call 911 from any phone.

ERM/EHS encourages faculty, staff, and students to report unsafe conditions on campus that could lead to an accident or injury.

Report a Safety Concern

Areas of Refuge

In an emergency requiring building evacuation, people with mobility or visual impairment issues may not be able to evacuate without help. There are designated areas of refuge that provide protection where individuals with mobility impairments may wait until emergency responders are able to provide assistance.

Authorized Table Locations

NYS Fire Code allows for tables to be placed in specific locations within the building, while maintaining access to emergency exits. Please review the Authorized Table Location map when requesting table placement.

Ergonomics, fitting a job to a person, helps lessen muscle fatigue, increases productivity, and reduces the number and severity of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Give your sitting work area a makeover with this guide to office ergonomics.
