Course Description

Building upon earlier courses emphasizing hazard recognition and evaluation, this course examines the major categories of control methods, respiratory protective devices and measures essential to eliminate or reduce workplace hazards. The course emphasizes plant design, ventilation design, preventive maintenance, housekeeping, respiratory personal protective equipment and hygiene.


This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
