The role of the health and safety unit in an organization has been steadily and significantly rising in prominence over the last several decades, in many organizations being transferred into the operations function. This is well-deserved, as the evidence clearly indicates that well-designed and well-managed health and safety programs contribute to a much healthier, more satisfied and more productive workforce. This transfer has the added advantage of a significant financial upside for the organization.
There are limited options available for post-secondary management education that specifically emphasizes health and safety, reducing the ability of health and safety professional to achieve senior-level promotions. This Master Certificate has been designed to further improve the post-secondary education landscape for upwardly-mobile health and safety managers and executives.
