Safety Training Self-Assessment (STSA)
For individual employees, required training is identified by completing the Safety Training Self-Assessment (STSA), which is also available in the UC Learning Center (UCLC). The STSA identifies the federal, state, and locally mandated safety training you are required to take. STSA results are viewable by you and your supervisor.
It is required for all UC Irvine employees and volunteers, with the exception of UC Irvine Health employees, and College of Health Sciences clinical department employees and volunteers who do not perform basic science research involving animals, biohazardous materials, or hazardous chemicals.
Please watch this short video to learn how to complete the STSA.
You can also view written Safety Training Self-Assessment (STSA) completion instructions.
If you need assistance or have questions regarding the STSA or your required safety training, email email@example.com.
UC Learning Center (UCLC)
To complete your required training at UC Irvine, you will need to use the UC Learning Center (UCLC).
UCOP has developed some general tutorials to guide new users through basic tasks, but please note that while the general information contained in these videos is accurate, the tools, features, and home page buttons you see in the tutorials may not reflect with 100% fidelity what you see in the UC Irvine instance of UCLC.
Please note that UCLC is intended for UCI employees. If you are a student or campus affiliate who needs access, please complete the "Student and Affiliate Access" Form located on the UC Learning Center home page. It normally takes 24 to 48 hours to receive access.
Required Safety Training
UC Irvine requires safety training to meet federal, state and local regulatory requirements. Because this is the case, we require employees to complete our version of the safety training we require. As a result, the only training we recognize from another institution is Laboratory Safety Fundamentals if it was taken at a UC campus.
The Storm Water Pollution Prevention: General Awareness training is recommended and not required. As part of UCI’s Storm Water permit, the State Water Resources Control Board requires the University to implement an education and outreach program. The Storm Water Pollution Prevention: General Awareness course is a one-time, 3-minute microlearning video that provides general awareness about storm water pollution, impacts of urban runoff, and pollution prevention practices.
Safety Training Self-assessment (STSA)
If you’re having trouble completing the STSA, please be sure that you have pop-ups enabled in your browser. When you click “Final Submission” on the STSA, a pop-up will ask you to confirm your submission by clicking “OK.” If this does not happen, your STSA will not be completed.
If you continue to have trouble with the STSA, please contact EH&S at 949-824-6200 or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
