Mandatory training for all laboratory persons handling hazardous chemicals.
IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR LABORATORY PRACTICAL SESSIONS: (Vancouver Campus Only)
We are thrilled to share that renovations of the Vancouver Campus teaching laboratory are nearly complete! We are anticipating be back in our Koerner Pavilion Lab on the ground floor of UBC Hospital for the start of July 2019. No practical training sessions will be offered the week of June 24th as we pack up our swing space lab to move back home. Once we are settled back in, we will start scheduling July Chemical Safety sessions in our Koerner Pavilion as usual.
We thank you for your patience during this process and we look forward to welcoming you to our newly renovated space!
