In the upper-division baccalaureate degree category, three semester hours in fire science, occupational safety, or risk management.

This six day course will bring together the role of first line supervisor with the responsibility of safety.

Through opportunities to apply knowledge, skills, and abilities of leadership as they are applied to the culture of safety, students will:

  • Critique the current culture of safety.
  • Evaluate the impacts of human dynamics.
  • Apply a risk management plan.

Using an identified safety issue for their agency, each student will develop a safety culture improvement plan to implement in their agency.

This course provides information using instructor facilitated discussion, practical activities, and an individual Safety Culture Improvement Plan project to convey instructional points.

Student comments

I learned a lot--the topic of safety should be at the forefront of every fire department.
