Lab Safety

Working safely in the lab is a critical element to the School of Engineering’s culture. No matter what you are working with, know the risks. Never hesitate to ask for clarification or guidance. Both Health Safety and Environment and the local safety team in the School of Engineering are happy to assist in any way.


UBC Policy SC1 outlines Occupational and Research Health and Safety. Please take time to read Policy SC1 as many aspects apply to your work. UBC has also published a structure of responsibility, Health and Safety Accountability, which clarifies responsibilities and roles within the organization.
