Considers the fundamental principles and practice of chemical, fire and explosion, electrical, machinery and construction safety, with reference to Singapore OHS legislation.
On completion of the course, students will be able to:
1. Identify the physical, electrical and chemical hazards in a wide range of working environments;
2. Clearly explain the potential consequences of each hazard;
3. Adopt a hierarchical approach to developing strategies to eliminate hazards or minimize risk in each work situation;
4. Prepare clear instructions and reports;
5. Identify relevant sections of OHS legislation and assess if legal requirements are satisfied.
In each unit of study, students will review relevant physical and chemical principles, both qualitatively and quantitatively; apply them to a range of industrial situations that could result in physical injury and/or environmental damage; and make recommendations for safety management procedures, which conform to legislative requirements.
