Occupational Safety and Health

Occupational safety and health means all sorts of different things depending on location. Going abroad will allow you to see a great diversity in employees’ rights, human rights, work environments, and legal systems regarding employees’ safety and health. Being able to compare intercultural differences and similarities in the occupational safety and health profession can help address gaps in the profession, areas for improvements, and/or help you develop a specific passion or interest in the field.
