Educational Offerings in Occupational Health and Safety: A Survey of Canadian Schools

This research included a detailed environmental scan and assessment of curriculum offerings in occupational health and safety (OHS) in Canadian educational institutions

No comprehensive guide or framework exists in Canada for the development and delivery of OHS education and training programs. Through an environmental scan and survey of health professional education programs, this study looked at how the needs of OHS stakeholders might be better addressed. The aim was to identify gaps in curriculum content and delivery at the university level, and to provide an overview of existing programming
