Requesting Access (Keys, Fobs, and Alarm Codes)

Areas Mech Grants Access For

The Department of Mechanical Engineering issues electronic access, keys, and alarm codes for the following spaces:

  • CEME (Mech areas);
  • Rusty Hut (Mech areas);
  • KAIS (Mech areas);
  • High Head Lab;
  • ICICS Mech Undergrad Teaching Lab wing.

ICICS spaces occupied by Mech can also be requested through this form.

Keys are only issued for spaces that do not have electronic access.

Many buildings that have a Mech presence manage their access independently, including CERC, CHBE, PPC, and AMPEL. Please contact those facilities directly for assistance.

Safety Orientation Requirements for Access.

WorkSafeBC and UBC require all UBC workers to complete safety training, including mandatory general training and job-specific training. At UBC, a worker includes: senior executives, faculty, staff, student workers, and visitors who have been issued an employee number. Mech requires non-worker students who have access to spaces beyond those granted on a course basis to meet the same (or approved equivalent) safety training requirements as workers.
Mech students who require access to RH 120 for wind tunnel bookings, and KAIS 1210 for instrumentation needs should refer to Safety Training for Student Teams instead of the list below.

In Mech, this requirement is enforced by not issuing keys, electronic access or alarm codes until training is complete. In addition to the university-wide requirements, Mech requires completion of the Floor Warden Training Course, as many workers are in the building outside the hours that designated Floor Wardens are at work.

The required modules are:

  1. SRS Module 1: New Worker Safety Orientation
  2. SRS Module 2: Preventing and Addressing Workplace Bullying & Harassment
  3. SRS Module 3: Workplace Violence Prevention
  4. SRS Module 4: One of:
  5. HR Requirement: Privacy Matters Fundamentals Part 1
  6. HR Requirement: Privacy Matters Fundamentals Part 2
  7. A Site-Specific Orientation Record for each space you are requesting access to, including office spaces. This training should be conducted by your supervisor or a designated trainer for the space. Please note that only handwritten submissions will be accepted. Please scan your document and upload it as a pdf, not as a photo.

Higher risk spaces may have additional safety requirements, including but not limited to:

Please discuss what safety training is required for your facility and tasks with your supervisor.
