Environmental Management Systems
During 2008 and 2009, the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conducted onsite audits of the Mercer University Macon & Atlanta campuses.
Mercer entered into an agreement with the EPA to establish an Environmental Management System (EMS), for the purpose of maintaining daily operations in compliance with EPA regulations.
- The manuals (EMS program guidance documents) were developed by the Mercer EHSO and Physical Plant Department.
- The guidelines apply to all university operations: academic, research, administrative, and special events.
- If you want a copy of a manual, have specific questions, or need further assistance on an issue of environmental compliance, please contact the EHSO.
