In this manner, the OHSE practitioner contributes to the building of a Safety Culture within or for his or her business or organization.

Working on the Risk Registry alone was worth the value of this course because I see how it drives change in OHSE Management. Really appreciated the Risk Management Maturity index too as it shows what organizational components need to be worked on.Vancouver course participant
