Chemical Laboratory Safety

This guide focuses primarily on chemical safety resources for the laboratory environment. Additional chemical safety resources, including regulatory and compliance information as well as Materials Safety Data Sheets and the Chemical Safety Database, are available on the web page of the Stanford University Department of Environmental Health and Safety. At least one Chemistry Department Safety Representative exists for each lab group.

Thanks to Stanford’s Department of Environmental Health and Safety and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Required Safety Videos for the Chemistry Department are available at your desktop. The Swain Library has also set up a couple of workstations so that videos can be viewed on library computers. Ask at Circulation Desk for more details. Please note that other interesting Online Safety Training Videos are also available from EH&S for Stanford students, faculty, and staff.
