- WHMIS Training
- WHMIS training is offered by the University and consists of an on-line quiz.
- Department General Safety Orientation
- The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a general orientation to safety. This seminar is required for all students who have access (i.e., keys) to the Mechanical Engineering Building or NINT building. Seminars are offered in September. Please contact Cagri Ayranci if you missed this seminar.
- Lab-Specific Safety Orientation
- Lab-specific safety training/orientation is offered by the principal investigator (PI) of the research project or his/her designate. This orientation should cover general safety information, locations of safety equipment, and safe operating procedures for the lab. Once this orientation is complete, the PI (or designate) along with the student should sign-off on a form to document this training.
- Planned inspection
- Planned inspection are required monthly by Faculty of Engineering. For lab inspection checklists guidelines or online inspection forms are suggested to conduct the planned inspections. The inspection frequency or inspection items on the lists can also be customized by the labs through hazard assessment. If you would like to conduct hazards assessment at your lab to change the frequency or develop customized forms please contact Afrooz Farjoo.
