Why Invest in OHS?

Safety is now recognized as an essential component of an organization’s overall health. 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 significance of leadership in an OHS role and stakeholder engagement than in the past.
