What is Occupational Safety?

Create a Safer World with a Degree in Occupational Safety
The field of occupational safety focuses on the analysis, prevention, and management of workplace safety and security. Occupational safety professionals examine different work environments (industrial, construction, and corporate), view how they operate, and determine the unique hazards, threats and safety issues involved with each. Occupational safety is regulated by the United States Department of Labor under the Occupational Safety & Health Administration. Adhering to OSHA standards and regulations is an important part of the field and a necessity for every business.

Students who choose to participate in the online Bachelor of Science in Occupational Safety will learn to develop initial safety procedures and emergency response policies. Attention will be paid to OSHA practices, governmental regulations and specific requirements for occupational health and safety standards. In addition students must learn to analyze and investigate a work environment for hazards and security issues.

The knowledge you gain in the online Bachelor’s Degree in Occupational Safety program is immediately applicable and can help you develop a clear career path in the world of safety and security.
