Welcome to the University of Memphis EHS Inspections page. Periodic inspection is one of the tools that we use to accomplish our goal of continually improving the safety culture on campus. Our approach to inspection is intended to be collaborative, transparent and professional. More than simply being an audit, each inspection is meant to be a learning experience in addition to making our workplace safer.

Below are the areas in which EHS performs periodic inspections. Please click on the link for the type of inspection for which you would like more information in the list below:
