Training records

Documenting training records

The University maintains training records for training provided by the Safety Office.

Departments and supervisors are required to document and store any training records for the site/task-specific training that they have delivered.

Refer to the site specific training form for assistance.


Access training records

By department 

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

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

Instructions for using the reporting tool

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

Student training records

Any employee can look up a student's training records using the safety training reporting tool. Students are not able to look up their own safety training records. 

Visitors/volunteers/post-docs

Records for these groups are not kept on Workday or on the University of Waterloo Report Server.  It is the responsibility of the hosting department to keep and maintain records of safety training.
