2D.2 OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY COURSE INFORMATION
Occupational health and safety is currently taught in the core course ENSC 1021. It is also mentioned in ENSC 1003 and ENSC 4062 in the contexts of ethics and Engineers’ responsibility for public safety. When needed, students are required to take SFU Safety courses (e.g. to work in the ENSC cleanroom) or must receive approval from the ENSC Safety Officer to work in places like the ENSC machine shop.
