Safety & Resources

CHBE strives 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 environmental issues, opportunities for improvements, and to review any incidents that have occurred. The minutes of each meeting are posted on bulletin boards in the Department.

The Department provides mandatory HSE orientations for all CHBE members. For undergraduate students, this is a key part of lab courses. For all other personnel, the presentations are provided at the beginning of the fall, winter and spring terms. If you have questions about how to attend the next planned HSE orientation, please contact

For more information, visit UBC Risk Management and/or see the CHBE Building Emergency Response Plan.
