Training records

The Safety Office maintains records of safety-related training for all employees and students at Waterloo and guides supervisors and departments on the training employees require. This page provides information on training records.


Access training records for your department 

Safety training records for employees and graduate students are available to designated persons in each department.

Who has access to this information?

By default, all health and safety coordinators have access. Others looking to gain access need to contact their departmental health and safety coordinator who then contacts Doug Dye in the Safety Office for final approval. Examples of who may require access are:

  • Departmental personnel who grant access to facilities (i.e. key permits and access codes)
  • Department heads
  • Executive officers
  • Administration officers

Using the safety training reporting tool

Use the safety training reporting tool to access training records for employees in your department (must be given access).


Looking up your training records on myHRinfo

  1. Sign in using your University of Waterloo user ID and password

  2. Go to Self Service Menu and then to Learning and Development

Individuals not in MyHRInfo

Having a WatIAM account does not mean you have access to MyHRInfo. MyHRInfo is the software used to manage training records for University employees. Undergraduate students, volunteers, and most visitors are not entered into the MyHRInfo system, and therefore completion of online safety training modules are not recorded for these groups. In these cases, the person completing the online training must:

  1. Take a screenshot of the completion page at the end of the training module.
  2. Send the screenshot to your supervisor.

Training matrix for supervisors

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.
