Campus Security

UBC Campus Security is comprised of qualified and dedicated in-house security personnel who are focused on the delivery of safety and security services to everyone within the UBC community.

Safety in the Workplace

Students will have opportunities to work and learn in laboratory facilities. Students are responsible for following all safety rules and obtaining safety training before they operate any equipment. Students are expected to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) prior to entering the laboratories. Failure to do this could result in accidents and/or injuries. If you have any concerns or questions about PPE, check in with a Teaching Assistant or a lab staff member who can assist you.
