Health and Safety for Workers: Laws and Regulations

Learn the relevant laws and regulations pertaining to occupational health and safety, including Cal/OSHA and federal OSHA; criminal considerations, such as supervisors’ and managers’ responsibilities; workers’ compensation jurisdiction, claims and benefits; the claims process and program administration; and legal liability. Case studies illustrate both simple and complex issues. 

Administering health and safety programs requires up-to-the-minute, working knowledge of laws and regulations. Learn to use the Internet to research the most current regulations during a computer lab session. This course is for individuals who have interests in, or responsibilities for, administering occupational health and safety programs. This is a required course for the Workplace Health and Safety Manager Certificate Program.
