Stanford University

Shop / Makerspace Safety

With 40+ academic, teaching and research-support shops on campus and satellite/ field locations, academic shop safety is an essential part of the Stanford academic experience. Shop safety activities include: metal-working and machining, wood-working and carpentry, electrical/electronic work, glass blowing/ forming, scenery costumery and set building, art sculpture and architecture building/ modeling, research/ device building, mechanics and vehicle building/ maintenance, 3D plastic and metal printing, and many others.

Under the direction of the University President’s Office via the University Committee on Health and Safety (UCHS) and Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S), the Shop Safety Program provides shop-management tools and guidance, outlines safe work requirements and procedures, and guides training and record keeping for all work conducted in Academic Shops.

For more information on shop safety, join your fellow shop managers and representatives at the Shop Safety Kickoff Meeting on Wednesday 11/6 @ 12pm-1p at Room A27, EH&S Building, 480 Oak Road.
