Welcome to the EAS Safety Information Site…
The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences is dedicated to cultivating a safe working environment for all whether it be in teaching, research, or administrative spaces on University of Alberta campuses or out abroad in the field.
A safe working environment is created through education and training, consistent reporting of incidents and near misses, safety planning through hazard assessments, risk assessments, standard operation procedures (SOPs), field activity plans (FAPs), etc., through continual re-evaluation of safety procedures, and open communication both within individual research groups and department wide.
This site is here to provide education, training, and easy access to forms, sites, and documentation as you work to cultivate your safe work environment. The EAS Safety Committee is always available to answer safety inquires, assist with safety incidents, or mediate conflicts where safety is involved. The office of Health, Safety, and Environment is here to advise on safe lab practices, perform yearly lab audits, provide education and training, and help with all safety incidents. The Field Research Office provides education, training, support, equipment, and documentation for all field related work.
