Training

Depending on your role at the University of Waterloo, there is specific mandatory training you need to complete as part of Waterloo's Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Program. The Safety Office serves as the primary resource for health and safety training for staff, faculty, and students. Choose a category below to continue.


Determine required training

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, the Safety Office developed a training matrix. The training matrix outlines the training required based on the role and the hazards present in the workplace.

Supervisors can modify and use the matrix to meet their department's needs.
