Intro to Laboratory Safety Course
All UBC summer students who may potentially be exposed to hazardous materials, are required to take this safety course. This course fulfills the safety requirement for UBC summer work students, co-op students or work study students ONLY who are working under direct supervision.
Successful students will be knowledgeable about the Workplace Hazardous Material Information System (WHMIS), biohazards, hazardous chemicals and radioactive materials.
Completion of this course does NOT certify individuals to work unsupervised with biohazards, radioactive materials or hazardous chemicals. To work with these hazards independently, all persons must complete the appropriate hazard specific course.
