Excavation Permits and Safety Codes

Excavation Permits

If your work on university grounds will disturb the soil, you will need an excavation permit. Please complete an Excavation Permit Request and email it to Design and Technical Services at excavation.permits@ualberta.

Safety Codes

UAlberta is proud to be an accredited corporation under the Safety Codes Council. The Safety Codes Council works with organizations across the province to make Alberta a safe place to live, work and play.

Under the Safety Codes Act, the university preserves the integrity of Alberta’s safety code system. We are accredited in each of the Safety Code Council’s five disciplines: building, fire, electrical, plumbing and natural gas.
