The MME Safety Training module is provided within the ME and MTE seminars. Students are pre-enrolled in these seminars at the start of an academic term. All MME undergraduate students in first year are provided safety training as part of their first year courses.
Graduate students are required to take safety courses to ensure proper training. There are three mandatory safety courses: Employee Safety Orientation, WHMIS 2015, and Workplace Violence Awareness. Students can self-register for them through Waterloo LEARN
Faculty members and supervisors
Supervisors should ensure that the employees have taken required safety training courses as outlined by the MME Safety Protocols (PDF).
