Occupational Safety Online Courses


Occupational Safety course share is designed to meet the needs of the vast majority of students who will find themselves with management responsibilities (including safety), but are not planning on careers as safety professionals.

How does it work?

The Occupational Safety program is course-share supported by three universities, each with a strong presence in industrial work environments. Courses are taught by experts from around the nation through a partnership called AG IDEA.  You will interact with students from other universities as well as your own through innovative, hands-on lab activities.  Taking courses online will provide you the flexibility to complete course work when and where it is convenient for you.
