Faculty, Staff and Students are required to complete safety training before beginning work in our laboratory facilities. Students from outside the department wanting to take any of our mineral processing courses will be wait-listed until they have met the undergraduate student safety training requirements. Students or researchers from other departments wanting to use our processing labs are also required to complete safety training.
Safety training can be accessed through our MINE Safety Online Workshop on Canvas. You can enrol and access the course here: https://canvas.ubc.ca/enroll/EGWKHH
Once you are enrolled there are different requirements depending on your role at UBC.
The safety procedures and policies set out here are for the sole purpose of keeping people safe and providing the information needed to deal with an emergency.
It is the responsibility of each member of the Norman B. Keevil Institute of Mining Engineering to familiarize themselves with all the procedures relative to a safe environment and to know absolutely where to access information and/or equipment in an emergency.
