It competes favorably with other notable courses known in occupationally health and safety. Personally, it has broadened my horizon as far as learning is concerned. ALISON training program addresses the rudiments and fundamentals of occupational health and safety which is required to be known from anyone who intends to practice in the field of workplace safety.

    Sindawa Joseph Zambia The course looks good and I would live to peruse it. Safety is the state of being "safe", the condition of being protected from harm or other non-desirable outcomes. Safety can also refer to the control of recognized hazards in order to achieve an acceptable level of risk. So Behaviour Based Safety is important because it is said 95% of accidents are human behaviour caused and this behaviour also relates to Drug Free Workplace (drug abuse behaviour which should not be allowed in work places) Workstation Ergonomics has to do with man and machine/equipment relation its very important because people work with these so a safe design of work machines, equipment and stations is very cardinal. Back Safety has to do with the safety of manual material handling (MMH) which can affect the back. Managing Safety and Health in Schools I would rather I do a case study related to the industry rather than community or public setting because of my occupation. 2016-07-14 10:07:34
