It involves identifying workplace hazards, assessing the risks associated with job tasks, preparing for safety audits, reporting correct and accurate information to the Department of Labor or more specifically the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Documents will be evaluated only upon written student request and only if the student is a degree-seeking student and majoring in the field to which the credit pertains.
