Compliance Explanations : Environmental Health and Safety

Compliance questions are asked to:

  • Identify special considerations in this application and bring them to the attention of reviewers
  • Provide information necessary for the UW approval process
  • Provide information that may help campus unit and central office approvers to review your application quickly

Each yes/no question must be answered, and each question answered "yes" may require additional information or explanation.  Some answers will also cause an approver or watcher to be added to the Signature Page or Approval Graph.

The Environmental Health and Safety compliance questions were revised in March 2013. If you have questions, see the Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) Web site, send an email message to, or call EHS Research and Occupational Safety at 206.221.7770.
