In the Hazard Analysis, Risk Assessment and Control course, students learn to define hazards and how to identify those hazards through hazard analysis processes. The course, in particular, examines process methods such as Job Safety Analysis (JSA) and Job Demands Analysis (JDA). The course also covers ways to distinguish between hazard and risk and methods for controlling risks and hazards. Additional areas include overviews of the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) and the Globally Harmonized System (GHS), and situational understanding of hazardous work scenarios, such as spill response, fall protection, and confined spaces.
