Occupational health and safety (OHS) has become an integral part of business in New Zealand. With a Grad Dip (OHS) you can help improve the effects of the working environment on the health and wellbeing of workers.
We spend a third of our lives at work, so workplaces contribute significantly to our health. Injuries and ill-health are two problems all workers potentially face. If you want a career helping to reduce that burden on individuals and the nation, then this is the qualification for you.
You will learn how to create healthy workplaces, including improving the interrelationship of people at work, the work they do, and their working environment.
To enrol in this qualification meet the University admission requirements and have been awarded or qualified for a relevant Bachelor's degree or equivalent and have completed at least two years of relevant professional experience or equivalent.
