Safety in the Scientific Laboratory

introduces students to safety practices required for working in science laboratories where hazards are present. Students complete individual online modules in Laboratory Safety and WHIMIS. Normally, it will be taken before the start of the semester in which students take their first science laboratory course with this prerequisite, and it must be completed no later than the first Friday of the semester. Check department lists of courses to see where this is a prerequisite.
