Stanford University

EH&S Annual Report Available – FY 2019

Dear Colleagues,

As 2019 comes to a close, we are delighted to present the FY 2019 Annual Program Report for Environmental Health and Safety. This report highlights some of the many accomplishments from this past year but also speaks to future challenges, as the university looks to extend the frontier of knowledge and solve real-world problems.

If FY 2018 was about shared learning and strengthening partnerships, the theme for FY 2019 was about putting strategy into action.Improvements in wildfire prevention and mitigation, fall prevention infrastructure, the introduction of new radiotherapy treatment options, and explosives mitigation work across the campus had a real impact on the lives of the Stanford community and could not have happened without strong partnerships. FY 2019 also saw the introduction of new services and programs such as the Workplace Health Innovation Lab (WHIL), PPE Cost-Sharing, and the online Safety Store.

We are appreciative of the support and continued commitment from all of our stakeholders, and would like to take this opportunity to thank the students, staff, and faculty for their work to support positive safety culture. We are especially grateful for the opportunity to support a campus community that is truly passionate about the mission of advancing research, scholarship, and service at Stanford. We look forward to the new year and the opportunity to support the incredible work that happens every day at Stanford.

Associate Vice Provost for Environmental Health & Safety
