The Animal Research Occupational Health and Safety Program (AROHSP) was established in 2017 as a central resource for faculty, staff, students and visiting scholars whose work with animals involves elements that fall under the oversight of EH&S (i.e., biosafety, chemical safety). The program also stands as the main point of contact for Stanford groups outside of EH&S for any issues, questions or concerns arising relating to animal researcher health and safety.
The program is responsible for:
- Assisting with all animal-related EH&S queries, assessments, or training;
- Advising on LAOHP outreach and promotion;
- Identifying central issues that arise across multiple groups, areas or types of research; and
- Bringing together specialists within EH&S and outside groups (i.e., APLAC, VSC) to address and resolve these issues.
For further information, contact the Program Manager, Dr. Susan Vleck, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (650) 724-7818, or come to the AROHSP office hours on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month, 2-4pm, in the VSC Conference Room (RAF room AR021, previously the VSC Library).
