Organizing Your Summer Cleanouts

When clearing out an office space or other room for any reason, it may be tempting to place items in corridors while you work. However, objects in corridors narrow the path for exiting the building and can be particularly problematic in the case of an emergency evacuation. If items must be placed in a corridor, consult with EHS by submitting a corridor use exemption request to ensure it is done in a safe manner. Read on at I-Safety (http://www.uidaho.edu/infrastructure/i-safety) for more information on storing and disposing items during a cleanout.

The Idaho Water Resources Research Institute (IWRRI) congratulates Micah Russell, a student of U of I's water resources graduate program, for receiving a scholarship to participate in the 2018 WaterSmart Innovations (WSI) Conference in October in Las Vegas.
