PROFESSIONAL HEALTH, SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT DIPLOMA (HSE)
HR Practitioners are assuming health, safety, environment and security responsibilities within organizations. Such responsibilities include the identification of hazardous conditions and practices, exposure control and mitigation strategies, legal compliance, development of a safety culture, and measurement of health, safety, environment and security program effectiveness.
Occupational health and safety is a cross-disciplinary area concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. The goal of all occupational health and safety programs is to foster a safe work environment. As a secondary effect, it may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, suppliers, nearby communities, and other members of the public who are impacted by the workplace environment. It may involve interactions among many subject areas, including occupational medicine, occupational (or industrial) hygiene, public health, safety engineering,chemistry, health physics.
The OSHA estimates the businesses spend $170 billion a year on costs associated with occupational injuries and illnesses — expenditures that come straight out of company profits in USA. But workplaces that establish safety and health management systems can reduce their injury and illness costs by 20% to 40%. In today’s business environment, these costs can be the difference between operating in the black and running in the red.
