Applied Project

The final term is self-directed and will consist of the development of a group applied project for oral presentation. Students will be evaluated on two aspects of the program -their contribution to the team project and their knowledge of a specific subject as it pertains to their group project.  

This project will have student groups choosing and researching an industry workplace for operating procedures, processes, accident statistics, and more. The group will conduct a risk assessment, then design and develop a training program that will explain how an Occupational Health and Safety program may be developed and maintained.  

Students will be working with mentors throughout the duration of the last term as they develop their project.
