Topics covered include state and federal safety and health standards, employee’s rights, employer’s responsibilities and managing safety and health.
This course is open to all students interested in entering or learning more about Occupational Safety and Health.
All courses are scheduled both weekday and weekends to meet the needs of working adults. Courses are offered for Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
