Lee Stone

The University of Alabama at Birmingham welcomes Lee Stone as the executive director of UAB Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) following a national search. He will join UAB March 1.

“We are excited to welcome Lee to UAB, where his experience and knowledge will serve him and our campus well,” said Greg Parsons, associate vice president and chief facilities officer. “We have taken great care and time to find the right person for this role, and we are confident Lee is that person. He will lead the way in creating a strong culture of safety on our campus, in our laboratories, and in UAB’s healthcare facilities.”

As a process improvement, the Environmental Health & Safety’s Campus and Life Safety department has created an online emergency evacuation course. This course will – in most cases – replace the in-person drills the department has traditionally conducted. Employees will receive an email from the Campus Learning System indicating that they have been assigned the course. It’s important to complete the course in a timely manner.

UAB Facilitiescylinders and UAB Financial Affairs partnered in 2019 to pilot a new online ordering process via BuyUAB for Airgas orders. The pilot was successful and in August 2020 a phased implementation began to transition all campus Airgas orders to the new online ordering process. This online ordering method enables UAB to better track total spend, monitor returns of rented equipment, and more effectively estimate budgets. Effective Oct. 1, all orders must be placed online via the BuyUAB Airgas catalog.
