Health and Safety

Notices and signage regarding Emergency Procedures are prominently displayed throughout AHVA workspaces, studios, offices, etc., detailing what to do and who to call in the event of an emergency or workplace accident requiring First Aid.

COVID-19 Campus Rules

UBC no longer requires students, faculty and staff to wear non-medical masks, but we continue to recommend that masks be worn in indoor public spaces.

The COVID-19 Campus Rules and UBC Guidance Documents  are in effect at the direction of the Public Health Office.  

  • Daily health self-assessments: All students, faculty, staff, and others must assess themselves daily for COVID-19 symptoms prior to engaging in in-person UBC activities on UBC Premises.
  • Stay home if you are sick: If you are ill or believe you have COVID-19 symptoms or been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 use the Thrive Health self-assessment tool for guidance, or download the BC COVID-19 Support App for iOS or Android device and follow the instructions provided. Follow the advice from Public Health. 
  • Mandatory training: As of April 11, completing the online training module ‘UBC Go Forward COVID-19 Safety Planning Training’ is no longer required.
  • Signage: Everyone must follow relevant signage when moving around UBC campuses or worksites.
  • COVID-19 safety plans & communicable disease plans: Supervisors will ensure that all faculty, staff and contractors are familiar with the latest guidance from the Provincial Health Officer as it relates to their work areas.
