Graduate students, faculty, and staff, are considered employees and must take safety courses to ensure proper training. There are five mandatory safety courses:

  1. Employee Safety Orientation
  2. WHMIS 2015
  3. Workplace Violence Awareness
  4. Accessibility training
  5. Graduate Safety Workshop: All research students who are going to work in labs must complete the Graduate Safety Workshop within their first two terms. The delivery of this workshop is currently online through Waterloo Learn.

Additional training courses can be found in the hazard-specific training section.

Employees can self-register for these courses through Waterloo LEARN.

More information about mandatory training courses for graduate students, faculty, staff, and supervisors can be found at the Health and Safety website.
