Safety And Health Management Specialization For Leadership (In Support of OSHA’s mission)

Safety! Safety! Safety! It doesn’t matter what the job is or how experienced you might be, putting yourself or others at risk for injury is unacceptable. At the UF/TREEO Center we know that having a workplace safety and health program is one of the most effective ways an organization can educate, influence, and protect their employees. Unfortunately, management teams who are responsible for worker safety often do not have adequate training to support their leadership roles and responsibilities in this area.

To help bridge this gap, UF/TREEO developed the Safety and Health Management Specialization for Leadership to help employers and workers comply with Occupational Safety and Heath Act (OSH Act). This Specialization, intended for Safety Directors and Managers, provides the necessary courses to aid safety leaders in creating and maintaining a culture of safety that focuses on identifying hazards, mitigating risk, and reducing workplace injuries.

Audience

  • Safety Directors and Managers responsible for managing front line supervisors
  • Safety Supervisors
  • Officers responsible for managing front line employees

Registration is Open!

Safety Starts with Training

The programs in this Specialization will provide you with knowledge and skills to perform your work in a way that is safe for you and your co-workers. Virtual workshop option available for these courses, check the drop down box on the registration form.
