Welcome to our Research & Instruction Safety website.

Safety matters at Smith College. Our safety committees and inventory and regulatory affairs unit ensure we provide a safe environment for students, employees, faculty, and staff as well as others visiting our facilities. We also help ensure compliance with federal, state, and local codes and regulations. This site provides resources (see side navigation menu) for students, faculty and staff to safely perform coursework, design and fabrication, and research (including in laboratories and in the field) and to stay in compliance with relevant directives.
