Benefits
  • Irrespective of where you choose to work, a strong understanding of workplace health and safety will always give you an edge over the competition. It is one of the few subjects that are universally relevant to every business and organisation the world over.
  • If you are already working, a recognized health and safety qualification could prove effective in enhancing promotion prospects. Employers always respond kindly to those who demonstrate their commitment to both the business and their own continuous-improvement.
  • Those who understand workplace health and safety are naturally in a better position to contribute to the overall health and safety culture of their own workplace. It is therefore a valid and valuable subject for all employees, including those who do not work directly in a health and safety capacity.
  • Businesses that flout health and safety legislation are usually prosecuted by the Government. The course in Occupational Health & Safety Management can help ensure that critical errors and oversights are avoided, which may otherwise result in disaster.
