Health and Safety Awareness

Course materials

  • Description

    This health and safety awareness training is intended as a general introduction to safety and industrial hygiene (occupational health) for persons who generally will not have primary responsibility for these programs, but are involved in their implementation.

    It is intended to provide an overview of the issues and common solutions for persons such as supervisors and managers such that they can recognize some common hazards, understand the hierarchy of controls and know when to ask for technical help in resolving problems.

    A companion to OHTA's self-directed, asynchronous,online course, this set of slides has been made freely available for self-instruction or teaching purposes. The course is designed to be completed in 2 to 4 hours. 

    PLEASE NOTE: only the slides are available for view and download. These slides can be found as a pdf under the headings "Student Manual" and "Syllabus", and as PowerPoint slides under the heading "Course Materials".
