Community invited to public meeting on campus health and safety

The Stanford University Committee on Health and Safety, chaired by Chemistry Professor W.E. Moerner, will hold a public meeting on Thursday, June 10  to review the status of health, safety and environmental programs at Stanford.

The meeting will take place from 5 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). Parking is available at the site.

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

The committee, which oversees all health and safety programs at Stanford, advises President John Hennessy about the adequacy of the programs, policies and organization. It also recommends policies and strategies to promote good health and safety practices for the campus.

It is composed of faculty, senior administrators, students and a representative of the local community – all of whom are appointed by the president.
