    Placide Jumonville III United States of America This is a good course for people to take who are interested in occupational safety, but have no exposure to it. For those who are already in the industry, the vast majority will be review, although a few items may be learned, depending on the sector you work in. The presentation is done well and will keep the reader's attention. 2015-03-04 03:03:11
