Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Advisors work every day to keep people safe in their workplace and are in charge of organising the health and safety systems. To ensure safe and healthy working conditions, OHS Advisers identify hazards and then find ways to reduce the chance of something bad happening.

OHS Advisers establish, administer, and evaluate risk management policies and programs, train personnel in OHS procedures, monitor and audit the workplace, and record and investigate accidents.

OHS Advisers are caring and empathetic and have excellent written and verbal communication skills.
