The Construction Safety graduate certificate is designed to allow the working professional with a bachelor's degree to acquire advanced construction safety and health knowledge. The coursework will provide the student with a comprehensive background in construction safety and enable him/her to carry out work site hazard assessments, develop and implement safety and health programs, and fulfill risk management responsibilities in the construction industry.

Note:  Students in the Construction Safety graduate certificate program may enroll in the Master of Science in Environmental Safety and Health at UW-Whitewater if they meet the normal criteria for that program.
