New Worker Safety Orientation

All employees ( faculty, staff, student employees and students with assigned offices) must receive appropriate training and orientation in the hazards of their work sites and the procedures that must be followed to safely perform their work. Please take the online “New Worker Safety Orientation” course, and then complete a Part 2 - Site Specific Orientation before working in any buildings. If you are not required to work in UBC buildings, Part 2 should be delayed until such time. 

For working in offices/classrooms please download the “Civil Site Specific Orientation Checklist”, print it out and complete it by hand (handwritten responses will only be accepted). Once complete, please scan or take a picture of the orientation and send to mandatorytraining@civil.ubc.ca

If you have any questions or will be working in a laboratory (or shop), please contact Scott at scottj@civil.ubc.ca to arrange your site specific training.
