GENE 570

Students will develop a working vocabulary and understanding of exposure, risk and safety terms. This can be applied to interpret occupational health technical data, and in the accurate communication of safety concepts. The course will give an overview of the laws and regulations governing occupational health and safety in Canada and Ontario. Students will be exposed to established systems currently in use, specifically WHIMIS and MSDS. The course material will provide a knowledge base for students to be applied during the Environmental Technician Program and upon entrance or return to the workplace. Promotion of awareness in terms of the risks and issues surrounding Occupational Health and Safety is the course goal.
