In the final module, learners will develop skills to coordinate, develop, implement, and maintain an OHS program within an organization. They will be able to objectively analyze (audit) the effectiveness of an organization's occupational health and safety program and overall safety system. Learners will explore how political, cultural, economic, and industry climates as well as corporate and personal values, influence safety culture. Participants will understand how the roles of management commitment, employee involvement, communication, supervision, education and training, safety recognition, safety policy, and safety committees all play a key role in the occupational health and safety program. As well as being able to provide legal, moral, and economic reasons for implementing a safety program. This course will pull together the elements learned in the previous courses to enable the learner to develop the necessary policies and procedures for a written OHS program including workplace inspections, accident investigations, record keeping, first aid, ergonomics, emergency preparedness, job-hazard analysis, training, work procedures and regular program review. As part of the program, learners will be introduced to a number of measurement and analysis tools, as well as several methods for designing and administering review criteria, questionnaires, perception surveys, interviews, and a final report.
