ENVE 401

ENVE 401 Occupational Safety and Environmental Health (1)

The passage of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a federal agency, to protect employee safety and health. In 1983 OSHA established hazard communication requirements. By May of 1988, all employees, regardless of size, were required to comply with the Right-To-Know Standards. These regulations established the need for employee training on potential occupational hazards and safe work practices. This training includes safety equipment training, management procedures to address workplace hazards, and accidental emergency response planning. Companies established safety and health managers for their facilities along with employee training. The goal of this course is to introduce students preparing for work in the environmental field to important topics, issues, and training needs for addressing environmental-occupational safety and health. Course topics include: regulations, management practices, hazard identification, exposure assessment, monitoring, employee protection, and program management.
