Working after-hours

Regular working hours at DMCBH are between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Statutory holidays, and the days between the Boxing Day statutory holiday and the New Year's Day statutory holiday, are considered to be outside of regular working hours.

Signing In and Out

All students, staff, and trainees working after hours must sign in on arrival, and sign out before leaving, including for breaks.

After signing in via the sign-in sheet, students, staff and trainees must also call UBC Hospital security (local: 7-4777) and provide their name, access card ID number, location, and an estimate of how long they will be working.

When calling security, specify UBC Hospital, Koerner Pavilion, or Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health (DMCBH) at the beginning of the call.

If there are at least two lab members working together in the same area, then checking-in every two hours is not required. However, all lab members need to sign in and out.


Sign-in and -out forms are posted near or in the lunch rooms on the fourth and fifth floors. The form on the third floor is located in the mailroom.

DMCBH Koerner Labs:

The sign-in and -out form is located on the bulletin board in the hall leading from the lunch room to the main open lab.

Working Alone

Working outside of regular working hours often involves working alone or in isolation. For what you need to know about working in isolation, please visit Working Alone or In Isolation.

Volunteers and other non-employees must be supervised and may not work alone.


  • For an escort between locations within the hospital or DMCBH after hours, call security at local 7-4777 and request the service. If the staff or student needs to go beyond hospital property, contact UBC Campus Security at local 2-2222.
