Occupational Health and Safety Training

Postby gardengirl » Feb 23rd, 2018, 3:28 pm

Can anyone out there recommend a good program for this? I have seen several schools offer courses, but want to be sure it is recognized professionally. (On line study please.)

are you part of a union? I know BCGEU puts on regular training that is free but it's no online. I haven't seen any online ones.

Are you looking for a particular course?

Thanks Alan. I did see that but I am wondering if it is worth it. There are other schools which offer training as well. I want to know which is the best bang for your buck. Most widely recognized, most likely to get you an offer of employment.

If you do it on-line, you are on your own. Doesn't what the name of the school is.

Well there is "distance learning" such as the one you posted at Ok College. The also one at BCIT, U of A, University of Frederickton.

Either/Or, they will both have the same validity and will have the same, basic, required, test scores. Best to contact the institution and see if they have any assistance with finding a job upon successful completion of the course. If you want to work in BC, then I suggest that you stick with a BC school. They might have some info and insight into the BC labour market.

Are you applying for the OHS position?

I know for my employer the courses have to be approved by Worksafe and the employer for those of us that sit on the committee.

I am looking at training for a new career. Need something with good prospects for employment and opportunities for growth and promotion.

The person in charge of health and safety in our company has an HR degree along with Health and Safety education. Is there a high demand for OHS workers in BC?

That is what I am trying to find out. Thinking it is an area where you could work in a wide variety of different types of business, manufacturing, construction, oil and gas, agiculture.

I would check the adds of jobs you might be interested in applying for and see what their qualifications are.

I work for the largest not for profit in BC and we have two people in charge of heath and safety BUT they also do HR.
