This course is aimed to give the students of the Construction Management (CM) department a more in depth knowledge on topics covered in the online OSHA-30 hour safety course. The online focuses on a wider range of topics that are covered in the OSHA-10 hour course that students are required to complete in CM 413: Jobsite Management, such as hazard communication, OSHA inspection procedures, industrial hygiene & bloodborne pathogens, and much more. The course will also include topics outside the scope of the 30-hour class such as: heavy equipment inspections, rigging safety and techniques, challenges of working in the marine environment, and spill kits/ hazardous materials cleanup. Laboratory activities will be implemented into the course for student to get a hands on learning experience, and be exposed to some of the situations they will see in their careers. This course will give Cal Poly CM students an advantage over other universities students because they will head into the workforce with higher certifications and a wider knowledge of personal and worker safety.
