Campus Life Safety & Regulatory Compliance
Columbia University Medical Center cares about the safety and health of our students, faculty, employees, and guests. Keeping our community safe isn't only about responding to emergencies quickly. It's also about being prepared.
Campus life safety at CUMC relies on the work and collaboration of three departments: Public Safety, Environmental Health and Safety, and our team—Campus Life Safety and Regulatory Compliance. Each group has specific operational plans to ensure the appropriate management of emergencies. Our department also trains employees in on-the-job safety and educates our community about fire safety, asbestos maintenance, staying smoke-free, and what to do in an emergency.
