Managing Safety in a Diverse Workplace

  • Online delivery
  • eClass
  • 7 hour course, no prerequisites

As a diverse work­force becomes increas­ing­ly preva­lent in Cana­di­an orga­ni­za­tions, the tra­di­tion­al one-size-fits-all safe­ty man­age­ment is no longer suf­fi­cient. Diver­si­ty can cre­ate chal­lenges in health and safe­ty due to dif­fer­ent expe­ri­ences, bias­es, train­ing, and atti­tudes. This sem­i­nar will help stu­dents rec­og­nize var­i­ous diver­si­ty-relat­ed chal­lenges and explore strate­gies to address them, such as effec­tive train­ing, pro­tec­tive mea­sures, and safe­ty communications.
This course has no prerequisites

Students from all educational backgrounds welcome. You can register for this course without applying and enrolling in a program.


Fall courses: all online

All courses will be delivered online, including many that were previously unavailable in the online format.

If you do see a program on our website announced as an in-person or downtown Edmonton offering, please disregard the format – but not the program. There will be no in-person offerings through the Faculty of Extension for the Fall term.

Get ready to keep learning! Register for a course and join us online this Fall.

Syn­chro­nous online learning, eClass

In synchronous online courses, students move through the course material at the same pace as their peers. These courses also provide learners with pre-scheduled online lectures that have the instructor and students interacting at the same time. All components of this type of course are accessible through eClass, the University of Alberta’s eLearning management tool. for­mat details

All of us at Extension are looking forward to welcoming you to our virtual classrooms this season with courses that are tailor-made for online delivery. Join us!
