Occupational Safety, Health & Environmental Branch

The Occupational Safety, Health and Environmental Branch provides Safety, Health and Environmental services for occupants of the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building (MIB) as well as Office of the Secretary nationwide.

What we do

  • Occupational Safety and Health - Occupational Safety & Health and Industrial Hygiene personnel analyze many types of work environments and work procedures. Specialists inspect workplaces for adherence to regulations on safety, health, and the environment. They also design programs to prevent disease or injury to workers and damage to the environment.

  • Sustainability and Environmental Management Program - In meeting the requirements of Executive Order 13514, the program addresses sustainable and environmental activities in the MIB through an Environmental Management System (EMS). The EMS creates a framework for tracking and reducing the environmental impacts of the MIB operations and services and addresses the sustainability requirements of Executive Order 13514. The program establishes environmental policy, roles, and responsibilities, enhances cross-organization communication and facilitates reporting.

  • Wellness Center - The Wellness Center is on the 4th floor in room 4058 of the MIB provides a full range of occupational and preventative health services. The services available at the Wellness Center include:
