COVID-19 Safety Training: Back to the Workplace
The COVID-19 Safety Training: Back to the Workplace is currently unavailable. An updated version will be available by July 30 that aligns with updated Washington state workplace health and safety regulations for COVID-19 prevention.
University units with personnel who will be initiating work on site at a University location before July 30 are required to review the unit or site-specific COVID-19 Prevention Plan with personnel before or upon starting work on site. Personnel must complete the online COVID-19 Safety Training: Back to the Workplace after it becomes available if they have not previously taken the course.
The University’s COVID-19 Safety Training: Back to the Workplace includes information to help prevent the transmission of COVID-19 on campus such as social and physical distancing, staying home if you are sick, symptom attestation, proper hygiene measures, cleaning and disinfection procedures, required face coverings and personal protective equipment.
Note: COVID-19 Safety Training: Back to the Workplace must be completed by all University personnel before or upon returning to work on site at a University location.
Notify the EH&S Training team if translation services are needed.
If you have technical or other issues viewing this course, please contact the EH&S Training team.
University units may provide their own training (e.g., medical centers) that covers the elements of the University’s COVID-19 Safety Training. University units that wish to provide their own training to personnel may download and utilize the Back to the Workplace training slides. Units that provide their own COVID-19 safety training for returning to work must document and retain attendance records as required by Governor Inslee’s Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery plan.
In addition to general University’s COVID-19 Safety Training, units are required to provide documented training on the contents of their unit or site-specific COVID-19 Prevention Plan.
University supervisors, managers and unit leaders can access a report of COVID-19 Safety Training records by organization code or manager using the Safety Training Report tool.
All University of Washington personnel must complete COVID-19 safety training.
