A Guide for Employers and OH&S Practitioners
Have you ever wondered why some recruitment advertisements for an OH&S practitioner outline job requirements, skills or designations that don't seem to match?
Have you ever read a recruitment advertisement where the job requirements, skills or designations did not appear to "line up" or left you with more questions than answers?
Have you ever thought about the myriad of OH&S designations and certifications and tried to determine what might be a suitable choice for you or your business?
Have you had an opportunity to review OH&S career guidance tools to assist in choosing your career path in OH&S?
If you have answered yes to one or all of these questions, you are not alone! In collaboration with a number of key partners, the CSSE has developed a guide... "Hiring a Health and Safety Practitioner."
OH&S practitioners regularly encounter these situations as do many employers faced with trying to hire an OH&S practitioner. For these reasons, we believe it is important to provide information that will help to clarify, and give context and answers to these important questions!
Internationally, the Guide will also outline some of the more common safety designations and certifications required for OH&S practitioners intending to work in multinational companies.
