Good Morning Everyone,
Whilst searching for education and employment oppurtunities in OH&S/HSE I have stumbled across this forum and reading through the topics I can see that there is a wealth of knowledge in here. So I thought I might pester some of you for some advice?
After many years of deliberation on where I feel I fit, I am almost certain that I would love to have a career in OH&S/HSE. I am a current member of the WH&S commitee at my workplace. I work as a Recruitment Consultant in a mental Health/Disability setting. I have a Cert IV in Mental Health, WH&S Consultation Certificate and am almost finished a Diploma in Managment.
I will be completeing a Cert IV in TAE as I have observed that this is almost always required by employers. I'm looking to do some further studies mid year but am tossing up as to what to do next?. I have decided that I definitley want to do university level qualifications, but am also wanting to break into the field by the end of the year. I'm also in my late 20's if this helps at all with suggestions/advice.
So my questions are;
1. Is my career path so far,looking positive or partial to what OH&S employers would be looking for?
2. Can anyone explain the differences in completing a Bach of OH&S/Bach in HSE?
3. Can I expect to get employment having done the courses I have and completing a degree in OH&S/HSE?.
I would greatly appreciate any feedback I receive.
Thanks in Advance
