Safety and Emergency Management

The School of Medicine’s Safety and Emergency Management Programs Office (PDF) works for you and your department. Our web site is designed to communicate information about safety in laboratories and offices, explain the School’s emergency management program, offer strategies for regulatory compliance and provide resources to help you work safely.

Good health and safety at Stanford University is a joint responsibility of the administration, faculty, staff and students. Each of us share in the responsibility for:

  • Keeping ourselves informed of conditions affecting their health and safety.
  • Participating in training programs, as required.
  • Adhering to healthy and safe practices in the workplace.
  • Promptly reporting to our supervisors potential hazards in the workplace, injuries and/or accidents. Line responsibility for implementing the safety practices begins with the immediate supervisor. In the Medical School's research and clinical laboratories, it begins with the Principal Investigator (PI).
