    The goalThis course ise designed to provide students with the necessary background of physical and chemical principles which govern the behavior of hazardous materials. Specifically, the course deals with identifying hazardous materials and the hazards of solids, dusts, water reactive materials, liquids, gases, toxic materials, plastics, corrosives, oxidizing agents. Hazardous waste handling, transporting, storage and recommended practices are also discussed. ;
    The outcomeDiscuss the hazards involved in dealing with identified and unidentified Hazardous Materials. Make more informed judgments for implementing proper actions in dealing with hazardous materials. Recognize existing knowledge gaps before incidents occur, rather than during the performance of emergency procedures. Engage in ongoing professional development for dealing with hazardous materials and hazardous waste. Know governmental regulations for the storage, transportation and handling of hazardous materials.
