Occupational Health and Safety (OHS)
This part of business revolves around the health, safety and welfare of employees in the workplace. We also call it Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) or Occupational Health. Aside from creating a safer environment for employees, OHS can also cover areas affecting customers, employers or any other people who may be affected by the workplace environment.
OHS operatives and representatives help businesses maintain a more pleasant work environment for employees while also saving the company huge amounts of money. This is because they help prevent injuries in the workplace which can lead to the company paying large amounts of money as compensation for injured staff.
As a career field, OHS has the potential to open doors in a variety of industries, from an office job, to site inspections for building construction or other high-risk environments. With the right qualification and training, you’ll have a range of options available to you.
Benefits of studying OHS
The courses offered by Ember Academy allow you to take on additional responsibility as an employee. This gives you the chance to prove that you care about your work environment and value you your role in the company. It is a good way to show your employers that you’re willing to go the extra mile for them, which can count in your favour when applying for a promotion.
The Occupational Health and Safety courses we offer are not accredited, which means you will not be able to use them for a job with high risk factors which require special qualifications. However, this does not mean they don’t have value for your career. We have carefully crafted this course to give real world value to your career prospects, to ensure that you have the best chance at progress in your field.
