​In Canada and around the world, the wide range of standard certifications and qualifications for occupational health and safety professionals in v​arious industries create inconsistency and gaps in the evolving health and safety needs of our businesses.

In a multi-year research and consultation project, the Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC and provincial and industry partners have been working to identify the core OHS competencies and capabilities needed to meet the health and safety needs of manufacturing companies. In this session, hear from experts in education and industry on this work and discuss the impact on future OHS training and assessment programs, professional skills and certifications, and adoption by the manufacturing industry.
