FTV 2/8/2010 The MSEP Classroom
The Marine Safety and Environmental Protection (MSEP) major at MMA began in 1993. The field of environmental and health safety is un going tremendous growth because every company and agency, on both land and sea has to have a department that is responsible for the health and safety of its employees, and minimizing the impacts of the company/agency's on the environment.
The MMA MSEP students will gain knowledge in science, management, and laws related to the environment, environmental issues, safety in the workplace on land and at sea, as well as emergency crisis management. Additionally, students participate in a least one 'sea-term 'to become familiar with marine and terrestrial ecosystem or conduct an environment safety internship.
In this picture Dr. J and 1/C Cadet Michael Senzapaura make a Hazardous Materials and You presentation to 4/C Cadets. The presentation discussed hazardous materials that can damage living organisms, personal property, or the nature environment. The PowerPoint went on to describe hazardous waste that poses threats to both life, property, and the environment, and to explain how any chemical can be a hazardous material.
In this activity you will examine Toxic substances and their effects on the human body.
