A report of the Task Force for Advancing the Culture of Laboratory at Stanford University

The University Committee on Health and Safety’s (UCHS) Task Force for Advancing the Culture of Laboratory Safety at Stanford University is pleased to announce the availability of the Advancing Safety Culture in the University Laboratory Report. A robust and positive laboratory safety culture is critical to maintaining, supporting and advancing the research excellence at Stanford. This report is the culmination of a year’s worth of discovery and evaluation of Stanford’s research laboratory safety culture. It provides findings and recommendations the Task Force believes will contribute to further development and advancement of a strong, positive laboratory culture at Stanford University.

While the report is focused on laboratory safety, it is envisioned as the first step in what will be an intensive - and ongoing - effort to further develop a positive culture of health and safety throughout the entire Stanford campus and community.
