NEW! Certificate in Safety Leadership Program - Coming Fall 2017
Helping Safety Practitioners Find Their Voice
Safety practitioners have the technical training and know-how to ensure their companies can operate safely. To be able to be effective in their role they need to also be able to influence the senior management team and build consensus with the entire employee group.
Safety practitioners typically have the technical hard skills but also need to develop their soft skills, leadership skills, and potential, if they are to be successful and help their employers operate safely. The UNB Certificate in Safety Leadership will help participants develop this capacity through the development of specific skills, knowledge, and abilities required to gain influence, build consensus, and successfully create positive change in the organizations where they work.
