Massachusetts College of Art and Design is committed to the health and well being of faculty, staff, students, and visitors to our campus. The office of Environmental Health and Safety is responsible for ensuring that all laws that apply to the College are properly followed (i.e. hazardous waste disposal, "Right-To-Know", etc.) The Safety Office is located in T-401.
