Safety Orientation and Lab Safety Training:

SUNY Poly is a secure facility. In order to access the facility, you must have badge access. All SUNY Poly Students are required to complete Laboratory Training and Safety Training and submit the corresponding quiz to receive a badge. Please use the link below to access the trainings. PLEASE NOTE: You only need to complete the Laboratory and Safety Trainings and submit the quiz, no other trainings apply. It is important that you complete this process (ASAP) prior to coming to campus as the review and approval take time. It is important that you review the instructions for downloading to ensure submission. This is mandatory and will clear the way for your badge access to campus. You need a badge every time you come into the facility. You will pick up your badge during the Orientation program on January 13.


As a reminder, always use your SUNY Poly email address.
