The health and safety areas of the Environmental Health & Safety Division work to protect people in many different ways. Our health area works to ensure safe food and drinking water, we protect people from rabies with annual clinics, and we have an indoor air quality program for things like mold, asbestos, lead in paint, and radon. Our safety area works with the community to promote seat belt use and workplace safety for our employees. We are here to promote healthier lifestyles with the Oneida Farmers Market and inviting Oneida’s back to the land with our parks and trails. We can help you protect the environment and save money with energy efficiency and alternative energy information.

MOLD & LEAD
Mold and lead in paint issues can create health and safety concerns in your home. In order for mold to survive, it needs food, a fungal spore, moisture, and warm temperature. Tiny particles of mold are found everywhere- indoors and outdoors. Mold is very common in building s and homes.
Lead can cause damage to the brain and nervous system, behavior problems, headaches, muscle & joint pain, etc. For information or to request a home survey contact Albert Baird, Industrial Hygienist at 920-869-4554. Home surveys are available to tribal members living on the Reservation.
