Health and Safety Training Program

Safety training is held regularly for our faculty members, teaching assistants, and students who are assigned to work in laboratories and research facilities. As health and safety is our top priority, it is important for everyone to understand its significance and to obtain the appropriate knowledge in practicing health and safety in our workplace.

Specialized training programs will be provided when situations or equipment require such training. The general training programs include the following:

  • General Safety Orientation
  • WHMIS - General Purpose
  • WHMIS - Laboratory Purpose
  • Handling Flammable and Combustible Materials
  • Laboratory Hazards and Their Control
  • Handling Radioactive Materials
  • Handling Biohazardous Infectious Materials

Our students are required to read, understand and follow the safety policies and protocols outlined in the Engineering Laboratory Policies and Safety Protocols Reference Manual prior to conducting their laboratory work. Students are required to complete a Safety Acknowledgement Form prior to working in laboratories to confirm they are aware of the Engineering Laboratory Policies and Safety Protocols and the importance of following these policies and protocols.
