The University of Calgary is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for students in which to learn. The EH&S Department provides leadership in the implementation of the University's Occupational Health and Safety and Environmental Management Systems, including WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System), radiation safety, and biohazardous materials.
Students are expected to take the necessary training to allow them to anticipate, recognize, evaluate and control the hazards they may encounter during course activities on campus, and to follow established procedures. These activities may include working in a laboratory, workshop or during field studies off site. By understanding and following safe work practices at the University, the student will be better prepared when entering their vocation.
The EH&S website provides information on legislation; policies and procedures; safety courses and on-line registration; as well as other health and safety related information and guidance.
