Managing a Respectful & Harassment-Free Workplace
The Managing a Respectful & Harassment-Free Workplace program is designed to support the needs of faculty, managers, and supervisors at UConn Health in maintaining civil, supportive and harassment-free workplaces. This three-hour, interactive program includes particular focus on preventing and responding appropriately to workplace sexual harassment. It is designed to provide tools needed to ensure compliance with university conduct expectations and policies in these areas.
The training is an important component of the University’s commitment to ensuring harassment-free working and learning environments. It is mandatory for all faculty that work with students and managers with supervisory responsibilities. This course should be taken within the first six months of hire or promotion to a management position.
For questions about the program, please contact the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) at 860-486-0633.

Any employee who has access to medical records and therefore privileged medical information is required to complete HIPAA privacy training. This course must be completed within the first 30 days of employment via the Online Learning Center.
All employees are required to complete HIPAA Security training. This must be completed within the first 30 days of employment via the Online Learning Center. Both courses are mandatory for the identified employees.
Every employee potentially exposed to human blood and other potentially infectious material (as described by the UConn Health’s Exposure Control Plan) must complete OSHA Bloodborne Disease Training prior to accomplishing any task presenting such a potential exposure risk. These exposure determinations are made by the supervisor. For new employees, the initial UConn Health Bloodborne Pathogen Training is completed as part of UConn Health’s New Employee Orientation. Required, annual follow-up training is available through SABA computer-based education. In addition all persons (faculty, staff and students) working in a laboratory must attend a self-scheduled 2-hour laboratory safety training session.
All employees are required to complete State Guide to the State Code of Ethics training within the first 30 days of employment via the Online Learning Center. The training provides information on the provisions, possible sanctions for violations, and the parameters of ethical workplace conduct.
All employees are required to complete Code of Conduct training within the first 30 days of employment via the Online Learning Center. The training provides information on the purpose and importance of individual behaviors – components that contribute to a culture of excellence and core values. In addition, the training provides information on the provisions, possible sanctions for violations, and the parameters for appropriate workplace conduct.
The Clinical Enterprise continually conducts clinical and managerial training for clinical and support staff. In addition, each new employee receives extensive orientation to their department and the institution. Continual exposure to advancing medical technologies is critical in a health care environment. Annual attendance at CPR, Infection Control, Code Blue and Hospital Safety In-Service Training is mandatory for all health care workers.
