About Safety Management
The City University of New York is committed to ensuring the occupational safety of the CUNY community. EHSRM tries to mitigate hazards by coordinating and organizing safety compliance through training and oversight programs at each campus and throughout the University.
Fire safety awareness
Fire safety is the shared responsibility of every member of our university community. Because CUNY has many multi-story buildings, the Office of Environmental Health and Safety and Risk Management would like to remind you of a fundamental safety rule:
“IN CASE OF FIRE, USE STAIRS
UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED”
In addition, the NYC Building Code/RCNY 27-01 (Stair and Elevator Signs in Buildings Which Have at Least One Elevator) requires that this rule be posted and maintained on all floors at the elevator landing.
