can be purchased at the UTSC bookstore; however students are free to purchase their books at a merchant
of their choice (so long as they meet the above requirements). Students are allowed to reuse their lab
notebook from previous courses (just make sure that your table contents reflects the fact that the book
contains material from multiple courses).
Safety in the laboratory is an extremely important element in the chemistry program at this University.
Failure to follow safe practices can cause laboratory accidents which may result in the loss of time,
damage to clothing, and other property, and most importantly personal injury. By following suitable
precautions, you can anticipate and prevent situations that would otherwise lead to accidents. Students
registered in CHMA11H3S will be automatically enrolled into the course which should appear in your
“My Courses” window of your blackboard home page.
As part of this course, students will be expected to watch a video (approximately 30 minutes long) and
take a multiple choice quiz on the material you just learned (the quiz is different than the previous
term). Students must obtain 80% on the quiz to pass the WHMIS course. In addition, students will be
required to print off their quiz results and present them to your TA before you will be allowed to
enter the lab.
Students will be required to purchase approved indirect vented chemical splash safety goggles, and a lab
coat before attending their first lab. These items can be purchased through the bookstore. All safety
eyewear must meet either ANSI Z87+ or CSA Z94.3 Standard for high impact protection (if you see one
of those standards stamped on your eyewear somewhere then they meet that particular standard).
Labs coats must be 100% cotton – no exceptions.
Further information regarding appropriate attire please see the guidelines outlined in your lab manual.
Note that students not wearing approved safety gear will not be allowed to participate in the lab.
Students taking CHMA11 will be assessed a $25.00 ancillary fee which will cover the cost of chemicals,
filter paper, Pasteur pipettes and other items consumed over the course of the lab. For more information
regarding ancillary fees students are encouraged to visit the following website:
Absence: If you miss a significant period of class work through illness or a related reason, you should
request consideration by submitting a completed University of Toronto Student Medical Certificate which
is available on the following web site:
The document must be presented within one week of the date of absence. However, you should notify the
course instructors the day of your absence (see your lab manual regarding absences from the lab). Only
serious illness (or equivalent reasons) will be accepted as justification for absence (note: the U of T
Medical Certificate, filled out by your doctor, stating that you saw him/her on a given day is not adequate.
Your doctor must certify that you were too sick to attend the test, etc.). The form of consideration
extended for a particular item of missed term work will be explained to you when you submit the
