Health & Safety Programs

Preventing Injury and Illness in the Workplace


Our goal is to prevent injury and illness from occurring as a result of work done while at the Stanford School of Medicine. This is accomplished through a program of training, hazard identification, and hazard correction. Each of us as employees and community members is able to make the school a safer and healthier place to work by our day-to-day and moment-to-moment actions. Using information provided in the training programs and by being observant we can eliminate or reduce the likelihood of bad things happening to ourselves and others.

The University Environmental Health and Safety Department has established an Injury and Illness Prevention Program that holds Schools, Departments, supervisor’s and each of us as employees and community members responsible for it’s active implementation. Each of the program areas outlined in other parts of the website are designed to support this central goal.
