About this course

Transfer your learning to your workplace

Occupational health and safety (OHS) has become an integral part of business in New Zealand. With a Graduate Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety (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 that helps to reduce that burden on individuals and the nation, then this is the qualification for you.

This is a professional qualification designed to provide advanced education in the fields of safety management, occupational health, environmental control, loss control, and occupational hygiene.

You will learn how to create healthy workplaces, including improving the inter-relationship of people at work, the work they do, and their working environment.

  • have been awarded or qualified for a relevant bachelor's degree or equivalent, and
