Program description - May 2023

The Occupational Health, Safety and Wellness (OHSW) graduate program provides a focused body of knowledge and skills for individuals interested in developing and building their knowledge and skills in occupational health, safety and wellness. In today's work environment, a balance of work and personal wellness is critical from both the personal and organizational perspective. The workplace is a priority target setting for occupational health and safety initiatives with the end goals of protecting and promoting both individual health, safety, and wellness as well as organizational success and growth. Therefore, employers are required to manage occupational health, safety and wellness from a legal perspective, and have moral and ethical imperatives to do so. Additionally, there is an economic advantage to employers who seek to maximize productivity, performance and engagement in the workplace since healthy workers are more productive, more engaged, and have lower absenteeism and presenteeism rates.The program is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in how occupational health, safety and wellness initiatives can be developed, implemented and evaluated in businesses and organizations across all sectors of the economy to address these imperatives. Students will learn about existing health, safety and wellness trends, analyze best practices, and utilize that learning to develop programs that address health, safety and wellness concerns within the workplace. The Occupational Health, Safety and Wellness (OHSW) graduate certificate program meets the education requirements for the Canadian Registered Safety Technician (CRST) certification offered by the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP). The program exceeds the CRST competencies by including courses in organizational effectiveness, project management, disability management and consulting skills.
