Graduated in August 2021

Why did I choose HSEC program?

I always wanted a career where I can make a real-life difference in people’s lives. My past educational background in Biotechnology exposed me to various elements of risks present in our environment. This led me to develop a curiosity to identify hazards and connect with the field of Health & Safety. I decided to make a career shift and chose Occupational Health and Safety as it works directly to make workplaces safer, healthier, and more enjoyable for all.

Why Langara?

I came across Langara College as a recommendation from a friend who had previously completed the HSEC program at Langara and shared positive feedback about the same.

Learning experience at Langara

I had an amazing experience studying at Langara college. The diverse community from the program coordinator, the instructors and my peers everyone was very supportive, and the class environment felt very safe as an international student. All the instructors were not only well qualified in the subject but also experts in their respective fields and brought their industry work experience into the classroom teachings. Through our instructors we were also exposed to various industry connections and enhanced our networking in the Occupational Health and Safety industry.

How it helped in job

The HSEC program at Langara is well designed to prepare the students become qualified to work in the health and safety industry. Personally, through this program I have gained the knowledge and confidence to start my professional career in the Occupational health and safety.

In my current employment as a Health & Safety Advisor at a private university, I have the opportunity to use my class learnings to develop the health and safety programs and a culture of health & safety for the community members.

Other experiences/professional development

I am a strong believer that, “Continuous learning is the minimum requirement for success in any field (Brian Tracy)” and this has motivated me to complete few professional certifications that has enhanced my knowledge and credibility as a Health & Safety Advisor at my current place of employment.

I have always been interested in occupational health and safety and wanted to work for the community. Taking the HSEC program at Langara was one of best decisions I've ever made. I had the privilege of learning from some of the best instructors who are experts in their respective fields and always happy to guide. The environment in class was pleasant and courteous.

The HSEC program has provided me with the skills I required to be a successful OHS practitioner. My current job as an OH&S Coordinator allows me to assist individuals in returning home safely and happily at the end of the day, which motivates me to strive harder every day to promote occupational safety.
