Course Detail: OSHA - OSHA & Aviation Ground Safety

OSHA books on table


The OSHA & Aviation Ground Safety course developed by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University provides the participant with the working knowledge of OSHA's General Industry safety and health standards. In addition, participants gain a fundamental working knowledge of an aviation ground safety program concentrating on how incidents/accidents can be prevented and the expense of avoidable incident/accident in terms of dollars and lives lost.

Participants will familiarize themselves with current OSHA violations and issues in aviation, acquire skills in the design and implementation of a ground safety program, and engage in discussions on real-world experiences to aid them in application of principles covered in the course.

Participants who complete the course will be eligible for the OSHA 30-hour General Industry Safety & Health Training Card shortly after completion of the course.

This course can be taken independently, or toward the Certificate of Management in Aviation Safety.
