College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Aviation/Aerospace Industrial Safety Management
The course focus is on the modern work setting from an aviation and aerospace safety and health point of view. An analysis of the history of industrial safety leads the student to an understanding of why and how aviation/aerospace industrial safety management evolved into an advanced discipline. The roles of and interactions between government, corporation, safety management and the worker, in the dynamic, economy-driven environments of aviation and aerospace, are central themes.

This course is designed to provide an overview of the breadth of the safety practitioner’s responsibilities in the aviation/aerospace industrial environment. The role of safety within the management organization and roles and responsibilities of the safety professional will be discussed. The student will have a broad understanding of the regulatory workings of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Federal Aviation Administration. In addition, relevant regulatory requirents will be outlined and strategies for workplace hazard identification and abatement to maintain compliance with these regulations will also be covered

Upon completion, the student will be able to:

1. Develop skills necessary to use risk and safety management concepts about real world health, safety, and environmental issues in workplace aviation and aerospace non-flight situations.

2. Review and explain the primary concepts and interrelationships of workplace aviation and aerospace non-flight operations regulations and advisorys from: Federal, State, and local regulatory agencies.

3. Explain the means, methods, priorities, and strategies for positively developing management leadership and employee involvement in managing health, safety, and environmental (HSE) issues through formal and informal roles and responsibilities, application of best practices programs, and the engagement of trained and certified safety professionals in the management team.

4. Examine and review the basic set of expectable workplace industrial risks, and then explain and use workplace hazard analysis techniques.

5. Apply hazard control concepts to safety risks as mandated by regulations and by application of risk reduction priorities.

6. Apply short and long term training programs to sustain HSE programs including comprehension of the needs and issues of adult learners, management and supervision, and line employees.

7. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter (effective July 1, 2013).

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
