Returning Labmembers

Under Stage 3, you will need to have completed the COVID-19 Hygiene Best Practices course (EHS-2470-WEB) and approved by your department for research access to campus.  At this point, you will have been absent from the lab for over a year, so you will need to refresh your safety training and ensure your PTA is up to date.

To obtain lab access:

  1. Fill out the online SNF Researcher Access Form (Stanford)
  2. Take the SNF Safety Training. You will need to pass the safety test and go through another safety tour. You may sign up for the now-resumed Monday afternoon tours or contact a technical liaison to coordinate a safety tour with one of your lab colleagues who has already re-joined the lab.
  3. Meanwhile, get in touch with a staff member to schedule a Zoom meeting to discuss lab needs and next steps (building access, lab access, Badger roles qualification.)

While we are doing what we can to provide a safe environment to work, returning to research is a choice that you make.  If you have health, safety, or other concerns about the work environment, know that University resources are available to you.

We are very pleased to welcome back our external researchers!  We are taking this opportunity to refresh accounting info and compliance requirements, so ask each non-Stanford organization to update documents on file.  Also, external labmembers must now abide by the same policies as Stanford researchers for contact tracing, so will be required to obtain/renew credentials for a SUNet ID.  Any questions about policy, contact snf-access@stanford.edu.

Each organization should designate a single contact to coordinate the following:

  1. Confirm your accounts are in good standing.  Contact snf-access to check your balance, and confirm your Agreement form and PO are up-to-date.
  2. Update contact info and SNF members.  Make sure PI and Financial contacts and list of authorized SNF'ers are current.
  3. PI should download and sign:  SNF External Labmember COVID-19 Acknowledgement Form

Each returning external labmember* should:

  1. Obtain/renew a SUNet ID: Contact snf-access@stanford.edu to obtain or renew credentials. In order to sponsor you for a SUNet ID, you will need:
    1. Provide your first and last name and full date of birth.
    2. SNF will create a profile for you in Stanford's database.
    3. You will then get an automated email asking you to confirm your information. Please confirm that email.
    4. Once you do, SNF gets prompted to sponsor you for a SUNet ID.
    5. You will get a second automated email so that you can select your own ID. Please confirm that email as well.
    6. Please note that it usually takes 24 hours for your SUNet ID to become fully functional. Sometimes it will work right away, but if it doesn't just wait until the servers refresh overnight and try again the next morning.
  2. Become certified with Stanford's COVID-19 Hygiene Best Practices
  3. Fillout the Access form for non-Stanford labmembers
  4. Take the SNF Safety Training. You will need to pass the safety test and go through another safety tour. You may sign up for the now-resumed Monday afternoon tours or contact a technical liaison to coordinate a safety tour with one of your lab colleagues who has already re-joined the lab.
  5. Obtain/renew parking permit:  Note that as of September, new parking rules are in place.
  6. Get back to the lab! Once building and lab door access are granted.

*Note:  Researchers must be labmembers in good standing as of March 1, 2020 and their sponsoring organizations must complete the above.
