Report a UF Safety Environmental Hazardous Condition

It is often possible to personally correct a hazardous condition ( e.g. wiping up a spilled drink off the floor, straightening a floor mat by a door). On other occasions, others must be involved to eliminate a hazard. Corrections often only take place if the hazard has been identified and those empowered to the reduce risk are aware of the hazard.

  • If you can not personally eliminate or guard against the hazard then report it to the supervisor of an area), to a maintenance or administrative group, or to EH&S.
  • Below is a set of units to call with potential hazards identified at the university.
  • Anyone who observes University of Florida conditions viewed as hazardous or environmentally unsafe is encouraged to report them to UF authorities.

Please try contacting the appropriate group below before calling EH&S
