Print your own Safety Training Certificates
September 17, 2012
So you want a safety training certificate for the Asbestos class you took last
week, well now you can print a copy for yourself! Simply follow the link to
My EH&S Training, and
you can print certificates for classes (with about one week delay) you have taken
through Environmental Health and Safety. Enjoy!
UW Digital Security Certificate
A number of commonly used applications on the EH&S website, including but not limited to OARS Version 2
and the online General Asbestos Awareness Training, generate errors if your computer does not have the UW
security certificate loaded. If, when attempting to access one of these applications, you get an error message
indicating that the security certificate is invalid or unknown, then go to
for instructions on how to update your computer's security certificate. This same certificate will also work for
many other University applications.
