Community invited to public meeting on campus health and safety

The Stanford University Committee on Health and Safety will hold a public meeting on July 22 to review the status of health, safety and environmental programs at Stanford. The meeting will take place from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. in Room A-27 of the Environmental Safety Facility, located at 480 Oak Road (between Stock Farm Road and Searsville Road).

The meeting will provide an opportunity for members of the university community or people living in neighboring cities to raise questions or concerns about Stanford’s teaching or research activities, facilities or support services as they may affect the health and safety of lab personnel, laboratory subjects, employees, students, the general public and the environment.

The committee oversees all health and safety programs at Stanford and advises President John Hennessy about the adequacy of the university’s health and safety programs, policies and organization.

The committee, which holds one public meeting a year, identifies needs and priorities, and recommends strategies to promote good health, safety and environmental practices. Committee members are appointed by the president and include faculty, senior administrators, students and a representative of the local community.
