Safety & Compliance Assistance Program



The Stanford Laboratory Standard & Design Guide is a resource document for use by faculty, staff, and design professionals during the planning and early design phases of a project. This Guide is to be used in conjunction with Stanford's Facilities Design Guidelines and applies to construction projects for all Stanford University facilities, including leased properties.

The Stanford Laboratory Standard & Design Guide is not "all inclusive." It does not cover all regulatory issues nor does it cover all design situations. It is important to note that use practices must be considered during the design process, as they can directly influence how the laboratory will be designed. In all cases, EH&S should be consulted on questions regarding health, safety, and the environment.
