Occupational Health and Safety
Learn to keep employees safe at work
The health and safety profession plays an important role in worksite operation, productivity levels and workers' health and safety.
According to the International Labour Organization, the total cost of occupational accidents and illnesses amounted to approximately four per cent of the world's GDP. To mitigate these risks, more and more employers are requiring their safety personnel to be trained and knowledgeable in functions such as material handling, ergonomics, fire prevention and risk management.
