Become an EHS Compliance Officer

What is a CO?

Thank you for your interest in the Environmental Health and Safety Compliance Officer Program. Chairs, deans, directors or provosts delegate COs the authority to promote safety and compliance in colleges, departments and schools.

They are the primary resource for safety-related information and distribute important compliance updates. 

Why volunteer?
Arizona State University models environmental health and safety quality. A critical component in this level of quality is the CO Program.

Benefits of service
