Industrial Safety 

Occupational safety and health concerns are not new, nor are these concerns limited to one country or one continent. A variety of studies have been conducted that document safety and health concerns. As a result, laws and policies have been enacted to ensure worker safety and health.

Safety standards and regulations exist in most countries and are similar in their requirements and their recommendations. This course covers ten common safety concerns in industrial, manufacturing, and construction environments. You will explore common safety standards, learn about procedures and equipment, and study recommended emergency procedures.
