The Safety Office serves as the primary resource for health and safety training for staff, faculty and students, offering various ongoing and specialty training programs.

In house training is offered in online and classroom formats.

Specialty training that is not listed on the Safety Office's Training Programs web page can be arranged for departments and individuals.  Please contact the Safety Office for additional information.  Please note that any costs associated with specialty training must be covered by the individual or Department.

The Safety Office maintains records of safety-related training for all employees and students at uWaterloo.  If you have received training from an outside provider that was not arranged through the Safety Office please contact the us so that training records can be updated appropriately.

It is the responsibility of each Department and supervisor to ensure that employees, students and volunteers receive training that is appropriate to the hazards present in their area of work/study.

To assist Departments and Supervisors please refer to our training matrix.  The matrix is in .xlsx format and can be modified to suit individual Department needs.
