Participants will build on the basic concepts of OHS management systems (OHSMS) and apply advanced methods of organizational analysis to better identify OHS resource and integration strategies and function within a company’s organization. The course will highlight essential business concepts and principles critical to: understanding your organizational roles and responsibilities; measuring resource and staffing requirements, prioritizing essential tasks and aligning internal resources and stakeholders to ensure a successful Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA) consistent with ANSI Z10, Appendix B. Ultimately, the goal is to develop OHS resource strategies that align with or help drive business strategies essential to successful implementation. Participants will learn through a combination of instructor- led discussion and case studies. Case studies will provide opportunities to apply these concepts at a site, regional, or corporate OHS level.
