UFred expands into Africa with new partnership

Partnership with OHS consultant to create better access to education

The University of Fredericton is proud to partner with Nigeria-based Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) consultant Rita Obayojie. Rita will help UFred foster new opportunities and grow its School of OHS in Nigeria and across Africa. This new partnership will help create better access for workers seeking high-quality education in the field of Occupational Health & Safety.

Safety is an essential component of every organization’s overall health. As such, employers need safety advisors who can provide credible advice on central questions like safety program design, operational risk assessment, incident investigation and analysis, environmental management, and more. Without formal academic and professional credentials, safety professionals may now find themselves to be at a distinct disadvantage. Modern safety practitioners who continuously pursue knowledge through OHS education have a healthier understanding of larger questions around corporate culture, relationship-based leadership, the signi

ficance of leadership in an OHS role, and stakeholder engagement than in the past.

UFred is pleased to be extending its reach yet again and helping organizations provide the level of health and safety their employees deserve through educated employees.
