COVID-19 Safety Training

30 minutes
Prior to or upon returning to work on-site at a University work location
Course mode: 

Personnel must complete the online COVID-19 Safety Training course prior to starting or upon returning to work at a University location. Personnel are required to take the course only once. 

In addition, University units with personnel who will be initiating work on site at a University location are required to review the unit or site-specific COVID-19 Prevention Plan with personnel prior to or upon starting work on site.

The University’s COVID-19 Safety Training: Back to the Workplace includes information and resources to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19 on our campuses.

Notify the EH&S Training team at if translation services are needed, or if you have technical or other issues viewing this course.

University units may provide their own training (e.g., medical centers) that covers the elements of the University’s COVID-19 Safety Training. University units that wish to provide their own training to personnel may download and utilize the COVID-19 safety training slides and COVID-19 Safety Training Resources. Units that provide their own COVID-19 safety training for returning to work must document and retain attendance records.

University supervisors, managers and unit leaders can access a report of COVID-19 Safety Training records by organization code or manager using the Safety Training Report tool.
