OHS career planning: competencies and development paths

October 29th 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm

In 2021, the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC released a new OHS competency framework for the manufacturing sector—the result of six years of research and engagement with safety professionals, industry executives, and academics. Designed to map educational and career development for safety professionals and bridge the gap with executives and hiring managers, the framework defines a professional standard for OHS skills and competencies. 

In this session: 

  • Explore the range of career pathways for OHS professionals 
  • Gain perspective on the specific technical and business skills industry hiring managers are seeking 
  • Share your input on the implementation of the framework in defining professional standards for accreditation, education, and professional development
