The importance of applying a holistic, organizational-wide safety management system and plan will be based on an understanding of the importance of risk assessment for determining and directing risk reduction and control measures.  Finally, students will be expected to understand the importance of establishing a positive safety culture and the key variables and processes in achieving one.
