At Stanford University our institutional leaders in research play a critical role in supporting the value and importance of safety in laboratory research. Stanford’s Dean of Research Ann Arvin, and Dean of Engineering Persis Drell, describe the importance and value of safety in academic research at Stanford University.
Our Principal Investigators (PIs) of research laboratories have been identified as the single most important element for developing and sustaining a strong, proactive laboratory safety culture in academic research laboratories. The PIs must clearly communicate and reinforce to everyone within their research groups that safety within their research laboratory is a core value and top priority. This begins by defining roles, responsibilities, authority, and accountability for the safety of researchers within their laboratories.
At Stanford University we are actively working every day to grow and reinforce awareness of safety issues on campus. This video is the first in a series that addresses key drivers of safety culture at Stanford.
