MOST SPM LEAVERS MAY NOT REALISE YET THE IMPORTANT OF OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY HEALTH PROGRAM. WHY IS THE PROGRAM IMPORTANT IN YOUR POINT OF VIEW?

“I choose to pursue a Bachelor of Occupational Safety and Health in CITYU because the program is endorsed by the Department of Occupational Safety and Health Malaysia (DOSH). The program may be unaccustomed to our youth but it has a very high demand in the market. It’s undeniable that nowadays market demand focuses more on this kind of technicalities. Moreover, with the new wave of industry 4.0 of course this qualification and knowledge is sought by employers more demandingly and is therefore vital to learn such skills to be ready for the demands of the 21st century.”

For William, the most challenging moment in his career is to educate society’s mindset on the importance of employee’s safety. He says, employees, most often, fail to understand that safety plays a crucial role not only in business but also in life; besides concerning budget constraints which is one of the most challenging areas in this field.

EXPERIENCE LEARNING IN CITYU

“Along my journey in CITYU, I am very satisfied with the lecturers teaching there especially the lecturers from my faculty; Mdm Faizah and Sir Farid who did their very best to help their students achieve good results. One of the most important aspects to choose the right educational institution is the environment and quality of the academician. If CITYU has both these traits then why not?”

Nowadays we should be wise in choosing an education that suits our interests and qualifications. It would be nice if the field we chose could provide us with employment opportunities due to the current and future market demand.

Let’s enroll CITYU’s Occupational Safety and Health program and be a part of our Allied Health Sciences faculty.
