Safety Training Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
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 email@example.com for assistance.
