The Department of Safety Sciences offers a program of study leading to a Certificate of Recognition.
The Certificate of Recognition Program is designed for those individuals who already have a bachelor’s degree and have safety program activities as peripheral responsibilities within an organization. It should also be noted that the Certificate of Recognition Program could also serve as a foundation for those individuals who would like to pursue a graduate program in safety but do not have an undergraduate degree in safety. Professionals who would benefit from these certificates are human resource managers, occupational health and environmental health professionals, or others who have safety as a peripheral responsibility.
The Certificate of Recognition Program in Safety Sciences–Safety Management is a 12-credit program that introduces the students to the fundamentals of occupational safety. The fundamentals will stress the recognition, evaluation, and control of common workplace hazards.
