Overview/Description
In the years since the introduction of the OSH Act, employers in the United States have seen a significant drop in the number of workplace injuries and deaths. However, the number of employee injuries and deaths remains unacceptable. In an effort to further encourage prevention and bring these numbers down, OSHA is presently developing a new rule that requires employers to actively manage employee safety by implementing an injury and illness prevention program. This rule forms part of OSHA's long-term regulatory agenda and, while no date has been set for it to be passed into law, implementing an injury and illness prevention program will help your organization prevent workplace injuries, illnesses, and fatalities, thereby protecting your employees and reducing the costs of responding to these incidences.

All employees should expect to work in as safe an environment as possible, whether they work in an office building, a factory, or a nuclear power plant. Since ancient times, medical professionals, social activists, and philosophers have observed and written about the various dangers associated with the work people do. In modern times, governments and industry professionals have stepped up and taken responsibility for creating legislation that protects workers from various types of hazards. The field of study that has emerged out of the need to create safe and healthy work environments is called industrial hygiene. All employees should be aware of the hazards they face, as well as steps they can take to minimize the risk of injury and disease. All supervisors should be aware of the regulations they must follow to ensure workers' exposure to dangerous chemicals and hazards is below legal limits. It is the role of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to educate both workers and their supervisors in the limits OSHA has set for exposure to various workplace hazards. This course gives a general introduction to the work of the industrial hygienists. It also explains the types of hazards that workers may face, the health effects of such hazards, and measures that are taken to limit exposure. The course was developed and reviewed with subject matter support provided by certified subject matter experts and industry professionals.

Overview/Description
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) once estimated that if a pandemic virus was to hit the US, approximately 200,000 to 2 million people could possibly die. This was based on models from past pandemics – the Spanish Flu (1918), the Asian Flu (1957), and the Hong Kong Flu (1968). The government further estimated that up to 40% of the workforce could be absent from work at the height of a pandemic wave. The potential impact on the social and economic infrastructure is enormous. When the H1N1 Pandemic of 2009 occurred, CDC estimated there were between 151,000 and 575,400 deaths worldwide in the first year. Since then, advances in science and preparedness have been implemented to prevent outbreaks from reaching pandemic proportions. Great strides have been made in monitoring and detection, risk assessment, prevention and treatment. These advances are outlined in the Department of Health and Human Services Pandemic Influenza Plan. This plan, an update of the 2005 National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza Implementation Plan, outlines the roles and responsibilities of governmental and nongovernmental entities, but clearly indicates that the center of gravity for pandemic response will be at the community level. According to the plan, 'sustaining the operations of critical infrastructure under conditions of pandemic influenza will depend largely on each organization's development and implementation plans for business continuity of operations under conditions of staffing shortages and to protect the health of their workforce.' In other words, it is essential for all institutions and businesses to develop their own pandemic plan. It isn't too early to start planning how you and your organization will respond to the very real threat of a pandemic virus. In fact, there could be a point when it is too late. This course is designed to increase awareness of pandemic threats and to provide information that can be used to form the basis of preparedness and prevention for your organization.

Overview/Description
Do you ever find yourself wishing you had more control over the way you do your job – especially tasks related to your personal safety and health? Many safety programs are designed and implemented by managers, with the expectation that employees will follow the practices they prescribe. While employee health and safety is paramount, safety programs designed by management may fail to recognize why employees take the risks they do, even though they may have been trained in proper, safe procedures. Systematic approaches to safety at work, such as behavior-based safety, can be used to enhance the safety programs organizations have in place – tackling safety issues by involving employees at all levels of the organization – where changes to improve safety are driven by employees on up through management. In this way, the collective experience of employees, like you, drives the change for safer work practices and conditions. This course explores the concept of behavior-based safety, how a behavior-based safety program is used to enhance safe behavior and a safety culture, as well as the roles and responsibilities of employees and management.
