As we watch the students in our province excitedly get ready for a new fall term, its a good reminder for us to embrace lifelong learning and bring that enthusiasm for education back into our careers.
This month AWARE-NS is focusing on getting "Back To The Basics" which seasoned OHS employees will find just as valuable as the newcomers to OHS.
What does the typical OHS professional look like in Atlantic Canada? The Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professional did a survey in December 2011 that give us some insite. Most have 10 to 14 years experience in the field which is consistent with the rest of the country. 68.6 % of us are between the ages of 40-54, 26% are 55 and over and only 5.9% are 34 and under. On average a little over 50% of us work 41-50 hours per week and when asked about career satisfaction 42% state that they are very satisfied while 48.7% stated that they were satisfied. One might conclude that the OHS Professional in Atlantic Canada are experienced, dedicated and happy.
