BSEM 420 Management of Safety and Health Programs

This comprehensive capstone health and safety course includes detailed study of the occupational safety and health regulatory compliance requirements in prototypical U.S. industrial facilities. It utilizes both the General Industry Standards of OSHA (29 CFR 1910) as well as professional standards of the major consensus practice organizations that address the practice of occupational health. Case studies examine different workplace settings and roles (e.g., regulator, consultant, or facility staff) as well as the possible management tasks that students may encounter in professional employment. Students are required to complete workplace and facility audits, create documents, and conduct mock management assessments pertaining to staffing and budgetary concerns.
