Fire Safety Training for the Hospital Environment

Each employee of McMaster University has to participate in Fire Safety Training. It is important to be trained on the fire alarm system in your building. A hospital building will employ a two stage alarm and a non-hospital building will employ a single stage alarm.

First you have to access the Mosaic page and sign in, your McMaster ID is necessary to sign in. Follow this link to access the Mosaic sign in page.

NOTE: If you cannot sign in to the Mosaic page you should review the information under the "SUPPORT" tab on the Mosaic sign in page or contact UTS directly.

NOTE: If you are off campus you will have to establish a secure connection to the Mosaic system using the Virtual Private Network (VPN). Follow this link to go to the UTS web page for VPN instructions and the download.

Once you are in Mosaic, follow these instructions to register through Mosaic. The Fire Safety offered from our office is identified in Mosaic as "FHS Hospital Fire Safety" or "FHSFSF". NOTE: The dates posted in Mosaic related to the session do not apply, the session will be available in Avenue within two business days.

Your request will move to the Avenue to Learn web site within two business days. You should scroll down to the "Continuing" tab on the Avenue home page to see the session. The training can be completed in Avenue and the result will transfer back to Mosaic within two business days.

The training should take about an hour and completing a test is required. Once you have successfully completed the training your record will be kept in Mosaic.

You can access your training record through Mosaic as well, follow these instructions to access your record. The FHS Safety Office does not have access to training records held in the Mosaic system.
