The effective management of workplace and environmental health and safety concerns has become an increasingly vital and expected component of responsible business procedures. Federal and State legislation governing workplace health and safety practices is becoming far more sophisticated and stringent, and has contributed to a growing employer need for health and safety professional expertise. Although the job markets for professionals, such as environmental science specialists, engineers, and compliance inspectors, are expected to grow as much as 27% over the next seven years*, the workforce to meet such a tremendous demand is not available.
The online Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health is ideal for individuals who are looking to enter the field and would like to further their education or advance their career. This certificate will prepare you for this growing area of employment in as little as nine months.
