   We evaluated the data of working environment measurements of chemical materials, which is estimated at class 2 or 3 management division, in Tohoku University from 2005 to 2008, and examined present problems in environmental safety and health at University.
   According to these data, a few work places in our university needed the improvement for suitable work place. There are several environmental health and safety problems in there, which were mainly caused by work management. Then they have taken the necessary corrective measures to be suitable circumstances.
   We concluded that the work places circumstances in university are dependent upon the work management level by labors, researchers and students, so it is important for them to educate environmental health and safety, and develop their ability and mind to assess and manage the risk of their own work in their work place.
