National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety

Work should be in healthy, safe and protected environments with minimal hazards. Accidents at work and ill-health related to work-life hazards is a major cause of workers disenchantment and dissatisfaction and the demands for compensation by workers sometimes triggers grievance and disharmony.

Effective health and safety representation is gaining traction in labour movements.

On the other hand employers require sound advice to make good decision on health and safety issues. This National Diploma would attend to the educational and developmental need of Health and Safety representatives in trade unions, enhance the capacity of Health and Safety advisors in HR departments, and further boost capacity of Labour Inspectors in the country.
