Business Skills for Health & Safety Professionals

Occupational Safety and Health is more than the right equipment and training.  Like every other part of a business, EHS requires the knowledge and use of business skills.  And while academic programs are excellent at teaching EHS professionals the technical side of safety, the trainees are not usually taught business skills until they have worked in the field for a few years.  EHS professional, managers, and members of labor-management safety committees need business skills to be able to make the best decisions regarding the economic environment and the stakeholder community.   Budgeting, report writing, incident investigation, risk assessment, risk management and risk communication are just some of the important areas they may be called upon to know, and to know it right away.
