Manual provides safety information for campus labs

A new manual provides basic guidelines for safe research, teaching and learning in campus laboratories, says Sherri Menard, team leader of the Chemical Control Centre.

“We’re pleased to be able to provide a central resource like this,” she says. “It includes everything from precautions on specific equipment to WHMIS information.”

The centre, part of Health and Safety, has a responsibility to ensure the safety of researchers, whether faculty, staff or students, Menard says.

Lift installation to mean some noise in law school

Although the installation of accessibility lifts in the Ron W. Ianni Law Building this summer will result in some construction noise, the loudest work will take place after hours, promise contractors.

The construction started July 18 and will affect the open areas on the building’s first and second floors, as well as room MG11. It will wrap up by the end of August. The loudest work will be restricted to the hours after 4:30 p.m.
