Hiring a Health and Safety Practitioner

Hiring a Health and Safety Practitioner – A Guide for Employers and OH&S Practitioners has been prepared by Canadian Society of Safety Engineering (CSSE) in the pursuit of CSSE’s mission, vision and goals.

The Guide is intended to serve as a resource to employers when hiring a health and safety practitioner. It also provides guidance to future OH&S practitioners on the type of education, experience, and other qualifications being sought by employers. Information on both Canadian and international safety designations and certifications is provided, along with suggested competencies and qualifications for OH&S positions from entry to executive level. An interview guide is included to provide employers with suggested questions when interviewing candidates.
