Diploma in HSE
About the Program
HSE training is a key element in the prevention of work-related injuries, illnesses and death. When educated on safety procedures, participants will know how to prevent accidents in the workplace and will also learn how to respond efficiently if presented with a dangerous situation. Another benefit of safety training is a reduction in accident and incident rates, which reflects favorably on the organization. Safety training is also important because it provides a way for companies to document proof that such training has occurred, protecting it from potential lawsuits involving injuries.
The objective of the Professional Certificate in Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) is to provide HSE managers and engineers with proper information and skills to develop and implement a variety of safety & occupational health programs at the workplace in order to protect personnel, equipment, production and the workplace environment.
