Consensus standards aimed at risk mitigation and management have had an increasing presence in society, in response to incidents with significant societal impacts, as well as global efforts to enhance sustainable development and resilience. These operational management systems standards govern many facets of society. Given that our world and our professional expectations are requiring increasingly more output, a management systems approach can ensure that contributing processes function efficiently. Those entering the workforce must understand the role that standards have upon professional practice, and be able to apply them in the workplace. Curricula that incorporate key standards used in the US offer students a rich skillset for effective performance in their careers.
This paper will describe and evaluate a modular approach for standards-based risk management curricula for degree programs in civil engineering and environmental, health and safety management and its impact on students entering the workforce in engineering and management disciplines.
