Essential Value of OHS Management Systems
The complexity of business and ever-evolving demands for change create an unprecedented exposure to risk for both organizations and their workers. Management Systems provide a method for organizations to tackle complex business needs in a systematic and efficient way. Have you ever considered if an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) would be valuable in your organization?
This 2-day course is specifically designed to demonstrate the value of an OHSMS through hands-on exercises, active discussions and the development of a gap analysis that validates choosing an OHSMS. Learn from the experience with your peers as you discuss the strategies and challenges in choosing an OHSMS.
Course participants will be able to:
- identify the elements of an effective OHS Managed System
- evaluate the value of Canadian and Global OHSMS standards
- determine how OHSMS elements support or hinder organizational success
- conduct a systematic review of OHSMS in order to recommend adoption of an OHSMS
Join us to bridge the gap between theory and practice in evaluating the Essential Value of OHS Management Systems.
