UFred's Commitment to OHS

UFred has long prided itself on being a leading educator of OHS professionals in Canada and abroad through our fully-online curriculum. With an emphasis on process-based learning and skills, our programs have been specifically designed help enhance your ability to apply OHS knowledge to any workplace environment you may find yourself in while simultaneously enhancing your workplace leadership abilities.


Developed in consultation with an extensive number of leading OHS professionals, our programs help students learn to identify, prioritize and manage workplace risks, poising them to more effectively contribute to the overall health and wellbeing of their organizations.

Aims to Reduce

The goal of this initiative is to reduce costs related to sick time and time away from work that are exacerbated by mental illness and mental health issues. Also to reduce stigma as it relates to mental health in the workplace.

Encourage and Reach Employees

We aim to encourage employees to seek supports as required. Also, proactively reach employees before psychological health and safety issues become systemic, and; enhance the experience of CERC members by providing training at the right time, when it is needed, and in a flexible delivery format.


This training is available only to workers who are members of the Canadian Employee Relocation Council (CERC). Eligible parties are able to register below.

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 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.
