Diploma in Occupational Health & Safety

The OHS Diploma is an advanced program designed to develop leaders in the area of health and safety with a mixture of business management skills and specialized technical health and safety skills.

The intent of the program is to broaden managerial skills as well as deepening technical skills. A differentiating theme throughout all courses will be a focus on “system thinking” rather than “incident thinking”.

The Diploma consists of four core Management courses that focus on giving the broad understanding of business, leadership, communications, workplace training, and decision-making.  Four additional elective courses must be taken, selected from eight courses on specific technical topics in Occupational Health & Safety.

Expected workload for each course is approximately 46 hours of student engagement; this time will be spent reviewing the material content and additionally referenced materials, completion of self-checks and written assignments, and module examinations.
