Info

Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) is a cross-disciplinary area concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. The goals of occupational safety and health programs include to foster a safe and healthy work environment.[1] OHS may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace environment.

Occupational Health & Safety can be important for moral, legal, and financial reasons. Moral obligations would involve the protection of employee’s lives and health. Legal reasons for OHS practices relate to the preventative, punitive and compensatory effects of laws that protect worker’s safety and health. OHS can also reduce employee injury and illness related costs, including medical care, sick leave and disability benefit costs. OHS may involve interactions among many subject areas, including occupational medicine, occupational hygiene, public health, safety engineering, industrial engineering, chemistry, health physics, ergonomics and occupational health psychology.

Info

The National Occupational Classification (NOC) is the nationally accepted reference on occupations in Canada. It organizes over 40,000 job titles into 500 occupational group descriptions. It is used daily by thousands of people to compile, analyze and communicate information about occupations, and to understand the jobs found throughout Canada’s labour market.

The NOC provides a standardized framework for organizing the world of work in a coherent system. It is used to manage the collection and reporting of occupational statistics and to provide understandable labour market information. The structure and content of the NOC are also implemented in a number of major services and products throughout the private and public sectors.

Note:  This could be a good source for job description development.
