Environmental Health and Safety: These trainings provide an overview of lab safety, radiation, chemical and biological safety, proper hazardous waste disposal and occupational safety.  These trainings can also be scheduled by e-mailing office@emergency.uri.edu or filling out the form on this website.

At URI, we encourage everyone to become familiar with our emergency preparedness procedures to ensure everyone’s safety in the unlikely event of an emergency on campus. Through trainings, educational materials and guidance documents you can learn how to prepare for and respond to emergencies on campus.  Preparedness is a shared responsibility among community members and can be achieved through simple steps such as becoming familiar with emergency protective actions, knowing evacuation routes and having a basic disaster supply kit.  All of these trainings are available upon request by e-mailing shawn_miner@uri.edu

If you are interested in an internship with the URI Police department, email shawn_miner@uri.edu for more information and an application.
