Over 10,000 employees are injured at work in Alberta every year. Some are seriously injured, even killed. As a result, organizations across the province continue to invest more time and resources to better train and equip their personnel, identify potential dangers and develop strategies and policies that keep employees safe. The NAIT Occupational Health & Safety (OHSD) diploma program will prepare you to fill essential health and safety roles in industry to meet the growing demands of government regulations. Our 2-year program focuses on real-world issues and practical skills and is the only program in the province that offers full-time OHS training. We are recognized by the [Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals](https://www.bcrsp.ca/), and our graduates meet the educational requirements for [Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP) certification](https://www.bcrsp.ca/prospective-certificants/about-CRSP-certification), the most recognizable designation for safety professionals in Canada. Over 5 terms, you'll be provided with classroom and lab instruction, as well as applied learning opportunities in a variety of workplace settings.
