Lab Safety

Regardless of the lab to which you are assigned, you must be familiar with pertinent safety information and emergency protocols including exit locations, eyewash stations, fire blankets, extinguishers and showers. This information will usually be provided to you through your course or lab coordinator and through the mandatory WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) training that all lab TAs receive; however, it is your responsibility to know all safety issues, preventative measures and emergency protocols before your students arrive.
