In order to access one or more of the laboratories listed above, the visitor must follow a specific training course and request authorization to access the Laboratory Manager (or Managers).

The steps of the procedure are shown in the following flowchart:


Further details and information are provided below:

We remind you that before having the attendant carry out the safety training courses for access to the laboratory, it is necessary:

  • Check the insurance situation of the guest: if the visitor does not have a contract with Unipd, make sure that he has insurance coverage otherwise it is necessary to take out a special policy (
  • If the guest has already carried out training courses in the field of safety in another University/institution/company, please provide a copy of the certificates already obtained for the checks

The credentials to access the Moodle training platform must be requested by the Laboratory Manager exclusively for visitors / guests who are not and will not be in possession of SSO ie university credentials (institutional email and relative password).

For guests it is not necessary to ask for the unipd email address ( as this, in the absence of a specific relationship with the University (employee, student, PhD student, etc.), does not correspond to the SSO (and therefore does not enable access to university platforms or other reserved sites) but is a simple e-mail box.

The credentials to access the platform must not be required for employees, contract collaborators, research fellows, PhD students, Erasmus students, master students, etc. : for these people you have to wait for the office in charge of the hiring / contract to provide the institutional credentials (SSO). 

Credentials for those who have been "unipd" students should also not be asked: the credentials they had during their studies continue to be valid for access to Moodle.

It is therefore necessary that the Head of the laboratory, before sending the email requesting credentials, verifies the position of the visitor according to the instructions above.

If the attendee / guest does not fall into one of the categories mentioned above, to create the account necessary for the use of the courses, the Laboratory Manager must forward a specific request by sending an email to the address  with the following information relating to the visitor:

  • TAX CODE (always MANDATORY to be requested through the procedure indicated in
  • DATE OF BIRTH (dd/mm /yyyy) and PLACE OF BIRTH (if the visitor is a foreigner: the foreign State of birth is sufficient, if Italian: city and province abbreviation)  
  • REASON FOR ACCESS to the laboratory (guest, visitor, scholar other university, etc.)
  • Personal email of the guest to send the login credentials
  • Email of the teacher / person in charge of reference to which to send in cc copy of the authorization made
  • For foreigners, specify if the guest can take the course in Italian or if it is necessary to carry out training in English.

It is NOT necessary to attach copies of documents (identity card, passport, projects, contracts, etc.)

Guests attending the workshops must carry out the same training as employees/students, namely:

  • General training course (4 hours)
  • Specific training course for low-risk activities (office activities and similar, 4 hours) or

Specific high risk training course (experimental activities in the laboratory, 12 hours)

The training modules are available (both in Italian and English) at the following link:

Once the training certificates obtained by the visitor have been verified, the Manager / Supervisor of the laboratory or his delegate will make sure that the visitor has read the laboratory access manual and will train the visitor in the use of specific equipment or devices present in the laboratory, if it is intended to be used.

The visitor can then proceed with the compilation of the LABORATORY ACCESS AUTHORIZATION FORM (available at the following link:, sign the form and collect the other signatures provided (referent teacher or tutor, Laboratory Manager). A copy of the form remains with the visitor, the other to the Laboratory Manager who will file and transmit it to the security service of the Department (
