We'll start by outlining the characteristics and functions of a managerial position in this unique environment. Then we'll explore different styles and theories of management in order to best tailor your practices to your team. No conversation is complete without understanding the inherent problems and risks of running a business or supervising others. 

In the second part of this course, we'll focus on workplace safety as defined by OSHA and general standards in the field. As part of this discussion on safety, we'll thoroughly review hazardous substances and their risks to the environment.

Next, we'll combine the two and look at how hazardous materials endanger the public and what to do to limit exposure or engage in cleanup protocols. Being part of the physical labor force, we'll examine safety considerations for such physical hazards as electricity, burns, falls, weather, heavy lifting, long hours, and what to do to protect yourself.
