How to start a career in Health and Safety
There is no distinct career path in an occupational health & safety role as there are a number of job positions that require an understanding of workplace safety. In some cases, individuals can go on to study a Human Resources related degree at university, which will enable them to embark upon a career in the HR industry, which too, focuses on the importance of understanding workplace safety. To be eligible to study at university, contact the course providers for specific pre-requirements, however, most will require applicants to have at least a grade C in GCSE English and Maths (if not higher), and 112 points at A Level or equivalent. If you’re in a managerial position within an organisation, it may be required that you have the appropriate and relevant training of workplace safety, which can be achieved by completion of relevant courses and diplomas.
