Area Safety Liason
Area safety liaisons (ASLs) play an important role at UTHealth Houston by assisting colleagues and other individuals in their area regarding health and safety concerns. The role of an ASL includes communicating safety hazards and updates, reporting security concerns to UT Police, and facilitating evacuation during an emergency situation. The Occupational Safety and Fire Prevention Program helps to organize and administrate the ASL program by maintaining an active list of ASL volunteers, providing annual training to ASLs, and supporting ASLs who may have questions or concerns about their respective areas or buildings. Please contact EHS if you are interested in serving as a volunteer ASL for your area.

Emergency Evacuation Assistance Program
UTHealth Houston seeks to protect its community from the effects of unpredictable situations by establishing specific procedures for coping with local emergencies. In that respect, the Emergency Evacuation Assistance Request was created for informing emergency personnel of parties that may need additional assistance in a building evacuation. This completed form will be secured in the Fire Depository box located at each building to identify the room or area in which the person needing assistance may be located. The Emergency Evacuation Assistance Request Form can be used for mobility impaired individuals who may need help for long or short term disabilities. Any occupant who feels they would need assistance during an evacuation is welcome to complete the form.
If you need assistance to evacuate the building during an emergency, please complete the Emergency Evacuation Assistance Request and email the form to the Office of Environmental Health and Safety at firstname.lastname@example.org
Upon receipt, a member of the Environmental Health and Safety team will contact you to confirm the request. EH&S will then update the HFD Fire Depository Box, notify UT Police and coordinate with your Area Safety Liaison (ASL).
If you have any questions we encourage you to contact Environmental Health and Safety at 713-500-8100 or 713-500-8165.
