Student Safety Training

This page provides information on safety training required for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Undergraduate Students

All Undergraduate Students MUST complete the following training within their first year of study. Failure to complete this training may mean you are not able to register in your Year 2 lab sections.

  • WHMIS
    • Even if you have completed WHMIS training elsewhere, all first year students must complete the paper-based WHMIS test administered in Engineering. Information about this test is provided during the first few weeks of ENGG 123 and ENGG 100.
    • Fourth year students must complete the online WHMIS training in the first semester of their final year.
  • Safety Orientation on Moodle:
    • Access to Ed. 489 and other secure labs now requires completion of the online Safety Orientation on Moodle before access cards are issued.
    • Students are required to complete this exam every semester and must achieve a score of 80% or higher before access cards will be issued.
    • The exam can be found at https://moodle.uregina.ca/login/index.php. Access the exam by logging into the Moodle pages using your U of R username and password. 
    • Upon completion of the exam, students will be issued a lab access card from the Engineering General Office (Ed. 409).
    • If you have problems logging into the exam or other questions about the exam, please contact the General Office or the Engineering and Applied Science Health, Safety, and Environment Coordinator.

Graduate Students

All Graduate Students must complete the training listed below. Additional training may also be needed for access to certain research laboratories. Please contact the Engineering and Applied Science Health, Safety, and Environment Coordinator to verify that you have completed the necessary training for your classes and research:

  • Safety Orientation on Moodle
  • WHMIS

Students working in Chemical Labs require a minimum:

  • All of the above
  • Chemical Safety Training

Some labs have additional requirements. Contact the Engineering and Applied Science Health, Safety, and Environment Coordinator for more information.
