OWARUHANGA NOAH GAD
With eagerness to undertake in OSH, an institute offering accredited and high quality programmes had to come in play and to the answer to that was EIOSH to the high reputation in offering certified OSH related courses. EIOSH is a well-equipped institution with facilities for practical sessions and as well as the theoretical and technological part. I wouldn’t doubt the choice that bought me to EIOSH.
EIOSH programmes offer an opportunity for every one to come from any background and achieve an alternative career path in the shortest possible time.Occupational safety and health is really an exciting programme, I find modules like accident investigation, behaviour based safety really exciting and interesting, they challenge me to employ different techniques in dealing with situations which gives me an opportunity to explore the other qualities that i never knew I possessed. The mode of teaching is practical with real life problem solving scenarios, which gives you impressive experience that sticks with you throughout.
Knowing that Health and safety is a day-to-day aspect, understanding a programme in OSH would help me get knowledge and skills about various risks and hazards and how to prevent them hence a healthy and safer life. Health and Safety is an interesting course varying from workplace safety to personal safety.It is inevitable that new technologies, global economic pressures, industrial and economic activities will continue to increase. These challenges create a greater demand for highly trained, highly skilled and highly motivated safety and engineering professionals like never before
I have been interested in all things related to OSH but couldn’t locate an Institute offering such courses here in Uganda until I found EIOSH as the first, leading and only Institute offering accredited programmes. This course has opened my eyes and awakened my curiosity about the gaps and the opportunities in access and provision of OSH skills in Uganda.I choose EIOSH because it’s one of a kind that currently offers specialists and practical courses in OSH, after I complete my course at EIOSH i hope to immerse myself in the world of OSH as either Health and Safety officer, Inspector or manager, it’s a career am so passionate about.
I choose to study OSH because of my desire to promote safe working environment as I realized that there is a huge gap in access to quality OSH services to many workers in Uganda. It’s find OSH a great niche in this 21st century working environment.EIOSH programmes are practical, applicable and relevant throughout our professional careers, lifelong skills like negotiation, change management, creativity and leadership will prepare us for the real world and make us a better with a high consciousness of Health and Safety in the 21st Century
I believe that the principles and practices of environment, health and safety are so crucial and relevant to all professions because diverse hazards are faced daily by millions of workers all over the country. We applaud Exceed Institute Of Occupational Safety and Health for pioneering such important programmes they have are so interesting and engaging. EIOSH programmes have helped me develop competence to handle complex industrial challenges, we have also gained knowledge about Occupational health, industrial hygiene, accident prevention techniques and so much more. We find EIOSH programmes fundamental in preparing students to exhibit a true ability for excellence, problem solving, experimentation and innovation, which are in my view very important skills in this technological age.
