Environmental Health & Safety

Safety is a top priority at Stanford.  The Department of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) is the principal health and safety office at Stanford University.  For more information about EH&S and department-specific training can be found here EHS Training.

Safety Awareness Videos 

The University has been able to expand safety video resources. In addition to the existing EH&S Learning Library, supplemental safety video resources are now available through Safety Source. Safety Sourse videos have been designed to help enhance employees' basic skills in hazard recognition and injury prevention. These videos are not meant to act in place of OSHA-required EH&S health and safety training, but we hope supervisors and safety supervisors use these videos to enrich staffs' current safety knowledge and awareness.

Supplemental Safety Video Resources: With these on-demand videos, units will have the flexibility to engage with the modules at their own pace and at times they see fit (for example, to be featured during team building meetings or during tailgates). Current topics include general safety, custodial, and facilities/maintenance.

OSHA 10 equivalent course: One of the Safety Source's resources includes an OSHA 10 equivalent course. Subjects covered include introduction to OSHA, Walking & Working Surfaces, Emergency Procedures, Electrical Safety, Personal Protective Equipment, Hazard Communication and more. Upon completion of the 10-hour training, individuals will receive a Safety Source wallet card. To gain access to the OSHA 10 equivalent training, supervisor approval is required. If interested, please email with the safety supervisor or supervisor cc'd.

Diversity and Access Office

The Diversity and Access Office oversees compliance with federal and state civil rights statutes, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and provides disability-related access information to faculty, staff, students and visitors in the Stanford community. Additionally, the Diversity and Access Office is responsible for ensuring Stanford facilities and programs meet all federal, state and local laws regarding equal access for individuals with disabilities.  Additional information can be found here Diversity and Access.
