New self-service access to online safety training


Alumni, affiliates, visitors, and students with valid UW NetIDs are (at various times) not able to log into EH&S online training courses and will see an error message when attempting to do so. This is because Bridge, the UW learning management system, does not recognize their UW affiliation. The Environmental Health & Safety Department (EH&S) developed a new self-service tool to assist these individuals with obtaining access to Bridge.

Most personnel don’t have access issues and don’t need this tool; however, if you are having trouble logging into our online training, take the following steps to load your UW NetID into Bridge:

  1. Visit our new self-service webpage.
  2. Follow the instructions to enter your UW NetID.
  3. Wait one business day before signing in again.

If you do not have a UW NetID, a UW faculty and staff members must sponsor you to obtain one.

If you need any help, contact us at We're here to ensure your training experience is nothing short of fantastic!
