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.
