Person completing the training courseBefore returning to campus, all students, faculty and staff must complete the web-based training course “COVID-19: Basic Safety and Awareness Course.” UAB Human Resources will notify those who are cleared to come back to campus and send a link to the required training. Those who are notified about their re-entry to campus should complete the training course prior to using UAB Healthcheck, a COVID-19 assessment tool, on a regular basis. 

If you have not been notified by UAB Human Resources, you are not required to take the training course or participate in UAB Healthcheck, a COVID-19 assessment tool at this time.

The Basic Safety & Awareness Course will cover COVID-19 awareness and health and safety requirements, along with how to report your health via UAB Healthcheck. Additional specialized training may be required for areas around campus.

While the training does not cover all aspects of UAB procedures for being on campus, it covers the essential information to be safe during the pandemic. Employees and students are expected to fully comply with policies, practices and protocols. Employees and students should learn where the resources are located and use them.

This course will be updated as we continue to learn more.
