Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) concerns the application of scientific principles to understand the nature of risks to the safety of people in workplaces. It is a multidisciplinary profession with applications in all industries and commerce.
Both community expectation and government legislation demand an increasingly higher level of protection for employees and the community from risks that threaten their safety and health. As such, there is also an increasing demand in society for professionals with experience and qualifications in OHS.
