Promoting safety in labs

To re-invigorate safety culture at the UBC Okanagan campus, Health, Safety & Environment is hosting a pilot Lab Safety Expo that caters to the health and safety needs of research and lab personnel. The main event is tie-dying lab coats.


  1. Re-invigatorate safety culture: bring your lab coat (must be professionally or UBC laundered prior to tie-dying), purchase a new lab coat, mask or scrunchie and join us in tie-dying! We will discuss proper lab attire, PPE, waste management and green research. Our vendors will showcase a variety of lab safety equipment.
  2. Promote health: a Health & Wellness table will provide resources to students and staff on how to improve their mental and physical wellbeing.
  3. Promote community: one of the greatest perks of being a small campus is the ability to create a sense of community. Bringing together researchers from across departments will reconnect us all.
