Course Description

A key aspect of any occupational health and safety program is the proper identification of any hazards that exist at the workplace, and the associated risk of injury or illness if a worker is exposed to the hazard. In this introductory course, you will learn the reasons why proper hazard identification is an important contributor to a successful occupational health and safety program, as well as practical tools to conduct workplace hazard assessments. The relationship between common hazards and risk of common occupational injuries, such as work-related back injuries or electrical burns, and illnesses, such as occupational cancers, will be explored in detail using practical examples.
