PRENDRE CONSCIENCE DE L’IMPACT DE SES DECISIONS SUR LA SANTE ET DE LA SECURITE AU TRAVAIL
This open online course introduces students to the issues of health and safety at work. French law and international labour standards impose positive safety obligations on employers concerning the health and safety of their employees. Over recent decades, several events in companies (cases of suspected asbestos-related illness, suicides) have led decision-makers to reaffirm the aim of a real Occupational Health and Safety Management in organisations.
Even if every employee has a role to play in ensuring the health and safety of his/her own organisation, the engineer is in the front line because of his (her) responsibility for employee health and safety.
This course is intended primarily for students in engineering school or managers, already employed, but also more broadly to anyone who might be interested in this topic.
The three main objectives of this course are:
Completion of the course will help students to understand their role in health and safety at work and become competent in identifying workplace hazards, carrying out risk assessments and investigating accidents.
At the end of the course, students will be able to design an action plan of risk prevention measures.
In this course, a role-playing game places students in a small French business. A serious accident has occurred, so the executive manager sets up a working group. During the 6 week course, the learner is a member of this working group in order to analysis this event and its consequences.
Intended Audience: This course is intended primarily for students in engineering school or managers, already employed, but also more broadly to anyone who might be interested in this topic.
