Safety & Resources

MTRL stives to maintain a safe, healthy and secure working environment for work and study.

Safety is EVERYONE’s responsibility.

The health and safety of all Department members including students, staff, faculty, and visitors is a priority. Department members contribute to creating a healthy, safe environment meeting UBC Policies and appropriate regulatory bodies.

The Department Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) Committee includes faculty, staff, and students who meet monthly to discuss health, safety and environment issues, opportunities for improvements, and to review any incidents that have occurred.
