College of Extended Learning

Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety

The Occupational Health and Safety (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. A differentiating theme throughout all courses is a focus on “system thinking” rather than “incident thinking”.

The OHS Diploma consists of four core management courses that focus on giving a broad understanding of business, leadership, communications, workplace training, and decision-making. Six additional elective courses must also be taken. The workload for each course includes student engagement, online content, reading additional referenced materials, doing self-checks, assignments, and module exams.

This program is designed for supervisors, managers, and OHS leaders. To learn more about the courses offered as part of the OHS Diploma, visit the course description page.
