What is the Safety Hotline?

The Safety Hotline offers anonymous reporting of non-emergent safety concerns.  It is NOT intended for reporting emergencies that should be directed to emergency services by calling 911.

If you want to report something that is not an emergency, you are unsure who to contact, want to remain anonymous, or for any other reason you may wish to contact the EH&S Safety Hotline, dial 919-515-5445.

Faculty, staff, and students can report any safety concerns, complaints, suggestions or comments on safety issues via phone (919-515-5445) or fax (919-513-2690).

You can call at any time, 24 hours a day. If you are unable connect immediately, please leave a message on the hotline answering machine. Callers may remain anonymous. All concerns and complaints will be evaluated and results of action taken communicated back to interested parties.

Who do I call for non-EH&S Safety Concerns?

There are other safety concerns that should be routed differently for attention:

  • If you want to report a safety condition within your building that requires attention to correct a less immediate safety concern, please contact your Building Liaison who will submit a work order via the Facilities Division.
  • If you want to report a safety condition outside of your building that requires attention to correct a less immediate safety concern, you can contact the Facilities Division Work Center at 919-515-2991.

What if it is an Emergency?

For a campus emergency, you will need to dial 911 to reach University Police or the nearest emergency assistance agency. This person will immediately contact the appropriate party whether it is response to: crime, fire, medical emergency, hazardous material spill, gas leak, odor, immediate serious hazard for trip or fall, and other items requiring immediate attention.

If you have a non-emergency question or concern and wish to bypass the Safety Hotline and directly contact the person in EH&S responsible for a particular subject area, please check the EHS Staff listing. Email the Safety Hotline for questions related to the Safety Hotline or reportable events.  

You may also report items of concern on the University’s Ethics Point website by clicking HERE.
