Effective interaction now demands that one is able to think from a management perspective. Traditional causation models focus largely on unsafe acts and conditions. In this course, students learn a systems failure model that engages all stakeholders, and shifts from a blame-based approach to a more progressive and effective accident causation belief system. This course examines several basic risk assessment skills and tools that enable employees closest to risks to deal with them proactively.
Learners will also discover how to apply these tools by becoming familiar with the process, needed resources and practical examples for each method. In most jurisdictions, a primary focus of any safety program is compliance with regulatory standards. This is typically an ineffective approach to reducing workplace losses.
The field of health and safety has matured and offers a variety of approaches to accomplishing this prevention goal. Knowing basic identification and management principles to deal with common workplace hazards will enable much more effective health, safety and environmental management program. Without question, we must all learn new skills to enable appropriate stewardship of our environment.
An effective health, safety and environmental management program integrates stewardship of people, property, environment and processes into one seamless entity. People — sometimes referred to as "human capital" — are the most under-utilized resource in the developed world. People are our most valuable resource, yet we often do not do a good job of equipping them with the intellectual and practical skills they need to perform optimally. We believe that effective workplace training tools — and the ability to implement intelligent training strategies — are key tools for effective leadership.
Litigation for workplace losses can reach into the corporate boardroom and cut deeply into the corporate treasury. Basic principles of applying due diligence and compliance with health, safety and environmental standards are provided.
TQM embodies the goal of continuous improvement with the spirit of empowerment, which are primary shifts required in the emerging economy. Effective health, safety and environmental leadership programs will recognize and apply the strengths of TQM to address issues in those work areas.
This course focuses on resolving issues that may arise from the design of a workplace that is not ergonomic.

Many variables in our lives and our workplaces impact that state of wellness. Understanding those variables, and having some tools to manage their impact, are key to A highly effective health, safety and environmental management program.
Traditional health, safety and environmental management programs are owned by senior management. Organizational cultures are undergoing massive changes and traditional approaches no longer apply in many sectors. Effective health, safety and environmental management programs are driven by all stakeholders that are impacted by them. As well, managers must learn to develop high-trust relationships with employees and to develop and create a working environment where these new skills are consistently expected and rewarded.
A continuation of CHSE Environmental Management Foundations, this course is designed to provide the basic knowledge and skills needed to initiate and maintain an environmental management program.

However, not all leaders understand and value workplace health, safety and well-being.
This module is designed to address that fact and to help the participant to understand what effective leadership and culture look like and what they can offer in terms of workplace health, safety and well-being. The components of the IWHM program are linked so that they can optimize their program effectiveness as well as support the functions of all the other IWHM components.
The result is an enhanced approach to promote and manage workplace health, safety and well-being.

This enables the learner to explain to organizational leaders the value of health protection programs from a risk communication perspective.
These programs tend to be part of the health protection programs as described in CE , but their components and functions differ. This fact is pointed out to the learner so that the participant can explain to organizational leaders the value of illness and injury management programs from a risk communication perspective. In essence, it enables the learner to build a basis for having an IWHM Program in place. Through the use of this pertinent information, the participant is positioned to explain to organizational leaders some effective ways to promote and nurture work-life balance in their workplace.
It explains how to build a business case by using the materials pulled together in CE Modules 2 to This module also provides a number of application tools and teaches how to deliver a business case to organizational leaders.
The purpose is to demonstrate how these stakeholders can collaboratively work together to make the IWHM Program highly effective. The terms, performance and performance improvement will be discussed, along with how organizational stressors can be identified and measured. In learning about the impacts of the toxic workplace on the employee and organization, the learner is positioned to provide organizational learners with effective ways to counter organizational stressors and to improve the workplace.
