Student Safety Training

Canvas Resources

Students will complete their required safety training for classes in Canvas. Safety training must be assigned to students by their course instructor. Students do not take training for classes in Workday Learning. Students do not have access to Workday Learning. Student employees are the only ones that have access to Workday Learning and can take job-based safety training if they are in Workday as an employee. Being in Workday Student does not provide access to Workday Learning.

To better assist faculty in assigning safety training for their academic courses, we created the table below to help you direct students to the appropriate training and to ensure that students can complete the necessary safety training to work in laboratories, shops, and other spaces on campus.

Students who take training in Canvas can create course completion certificates to show that they successfully completed a specific safety training course. Reminder: faculty, staff, student researchers, and student employees who complete safety training in Workday Learning cannot create course completion certificates.
