Health and Safety Training Courses for students

How to enroll and attend the compulsory Health and Safety Training Courses for students enrolled in the degree programmes of Engineering and Architecture

The Health and Safety Training Courses are provided for students enrolled in the degree programmes of Engineering and Architecture area.

This is a compulsory training activity for students who carry out (or intend to carry out) internships, thesis work or activities in laboratories. According to the current legislation, these students are equivalent to workers. So, the participation in these courses is mandatory and required in order to carry out activities with specific risks, both within the University and in companies.

Health and Safety Training Courses held by the University of Bologna are divided into three modules.

General Training (module 1) and Specific Training - first part (module 2) involve all students and are available online in e-learning on the specific Unibo platform. The instructions about the access are available on the following web page:

Specific Training – second part (module 3) is organized in several fields, which have different features based on the different Degree Programmes, in order to analyze in detail the type of risks connected to the relevant activities.

In the list below, you can find the different types of Module 3, according to the DP you are enrolled in:

  “Chemical” area – Module 3B1

Chemical and Biochemical Engineering- L

Chemical and Process Engineering - LM

  “Electric and Electronic” area – Module 3B2

Advanced Automotive Electronic Engineering - LM

Automation Engineering - L

Mechatronics Engineering - L

Electrical Energy Engineering - L, LM

Electronic Engineering - LM

Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering - L

Energy Engineering - L, LM

Telecommunications Engineering - LM

Automation Engineering - LM

  “Civil” area – Module 3B3

Civil Engineering - L, LM

Environmental Engineering – L, LM

Architecture And Building Engineering, LMCU

Civil Engineering - LM

  “Mechanical” area – Module 3B4

Advanced Design - LM

Industrial Design - L

Mechanical Engineering - L, LM

  “Information Technology” area

Computer Engineering - L, LM

No Safety Course 3 is required, unless the student is involved in a traineeship or thesis preparation which implies attendance of technical laboratories.

  “Management” area

Engineering  Management - L, LM

No Safety Course 3 is required, unless the student is involved in a traineeship or thesis preparation which implies attendance of technical laboratories.

N.B.: The modules of  the “Chemical”, “Electric and Electronic” and “Civil” areas are delivered both in Italian and in English. The area can be different than the indication in the list above, if requested by your professors or lab coordinators.

Different specific modules are offered for different groups of degree programmes for an overall amount of 4 hours.

Programmes’ Directors might advise students about the specific training courses to attend according to the risk involved in the activities they need to perform.

How to enroll and get the certificate

In order to apply and take a look at the calendar, it is necessary to enter in your personal area on Studenti Online e click the box Bookings. You will see a list of courses and activities. Click the button Book on the activity you are interested in, then it will be possible to select a day according to the place, date and hour.  

At the end of the course and having passed the final test, students can download the certificate from Studenti Online, in the area “Certificates and self-certifications”.

It is important to know that such certification will be obtained on a frequency of at least 90% of the hours required for each module (i.e. a maximum of 25 minutes of absence for justified reasons). The certificate is also valid outside the University of Bologna and, as far as the general module is concerned, it does not expire; certifications for the other modules (specific training) expire after five years.
