It is important that every member of University of Waterloo community understands what to do and whom to contact in the event of an emergency. The Safety Office administers university-wide emergency programs such as fire and large scale spills of hazardous materials. Individual faculties/departments and shops/studios/laboratories must also have their own emergency procedures in place that are specific to their work/study areas and ensure that University employees and students know and understand these procedures. Information regarding these specific procedures can be obtained from your supervisor or instructor.
Information on university-wide procedures is presented here in this section of the Safety Office website. Choose a topic below for more information.
