The ExpertTrack consists of two courses, which run over 4 weeks.

You have already completed the first course, Occupational Safety and Health Hazards, where we have discussed the hazards that can be found in the workplace. We have discussed the five groups of hazards, i.e., physical, ergonomics, psychosocial, chemical and biological.

The Risk Assessment and Management course is again divided into two weeks.

In the first week, we will introduce how to conduct risk assessments at work and provide a template and examples of risk assessment. The following week, we will discuss risk mitigation and management.

At the end of the ExpertTrack, you will have a basic understanding of occupational hazards and how to conduct risk assessments. You will also be able to propose risk control measures for workplace hazards.
