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 to 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.

Provide Additional Resources

Through its partnership with UFred, WorkSafe Saskatchewan and the province's employers will have access to resources to help establish systems and programs that protect the psychological health and wellness of their employees.

Working to Enhance Workplace Resiliency

In addition to the resources in psychological health and safety, the partnership between UFred and the WCB will also provide course modules focused on enhancing workplace resiliency to cope with and manage common stressors. The resource-rich content of the resiliency course provides practical approaches for employees to lead a psychologically safe work environment and identify how to respond and manage situations where an employee is struggling.

Saskatchewan Only

This training is available only to workers who are both employed by Saskatchewan employers and who live and work in Saskatchewan. 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 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.
