EHSO moves to 1762 Clifton
The main offices of the Environmental Health and Safety Office (EHSO) have moved to 1762 Clifton Rd., Suite 1200, the location formerly occupied by Procurement and Payment Services.

Contact numbers and fax numbers remain the same. EHSO director Patricia Olinger praises the new digs from a “workability standpoint and a synergy standpoint…This brings everyone together in one group,” she says, noting that they had outgrown their spaces at the dental school.

The new location provides EHSO with a training facility, a smaller conference room, parking for visitors and the convenience of having all the main EHSO components consolidated.

EHSO’s Office of Environmental Affairs, which remains in the Whitehead Building, Suite G-44, and Radiation Safety Support for Crawford Long and Emory University hospitals were not affected by the move, Olinger confirms.

The new offices are served by the “A” Cliff shuttle, CCTMA, the Executive Park shuttle or MARTA.
