Aloha UH Employee ʻOhana,

To help prepare for the fall semester, the university has developed an online COVID-19 safety training program that is mandatory for all UH employees, including RCUH and student employees. The training will provide employees with information to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, particularly in the workplace, and comply with Hawaii Occupational Health and Safety requirements for employee training. The purpose is to inform employees of the hazards of COVID-19 and measures for protection.

Go to UH COVID-19 Employee Safety Training Program home page and select the appropriate link that best describes your employment category–UH employee, RCUH employee or student employee. All UH employees have been enrolled in the Saba Learning Management System (LMS). If you haven’t already, you should be receiving an email with the Subject: “UH LMS Notice - Certification Signup” with confirmation of your enrollment.

Please note that you will be prompted to use your UH login credentials to gain access to the training material in the SABA LMS.

I urge everyone to take this training as soon as possible, even if you are currently teleworking and expect to telework for the remainder of the year. You and everyone around you will be safer if you are updated on the latest and most accurate information about COVID-19. We also want to ensure that our entire ʻohana has a clear understanding of the requirements for coming to any UH campus such as mandatory use of the daily UH health check-in app as well as mandatory use of face coverings while on campus.

Please make completion of this training program a top priority and do your part to help protect your health and wellbeing as well as that of your coworkers, our students, your family and the entire state. We all share the responsibility to stop the spread of COVID-19 on and off our campuses. For questions or comments related to this training please email

Mahalo for your attention to this and for all you do to move us forward during this global pandemic.

E mālama pono,
David Lassner
UH President
