SHES COVID-19 Resource Page

The Safety, Health, and Environmental Services program is closely monitoring the COVID-19/coronavirus situation. We are committed to you, our clients, and our mission to help keep Georgia workplaces safe for employees. Our greatest concern is for the health, safety, and well-being of our clients and staff. As a Unit of Georgia Tech, we will continue to comply with its operational directives, and that of the University System of Georgia.
