Occupational Health and Safety

In celebration of our convocation 2023, and the opportunity for us to finally be together and celebrate in person after three years, we asked our graduates to share their Anderson College experience.

Asking, “How has Anderson College changed your life?” prompted over a hundred submissions … this is one of those extraordinary student stories.

We hope this reflection moves you, as it has our Anderson family, and inspires you to ever embrace the career and life you imagine and, truly, deserve.

Going back to school at my age wasn’t too difficult a decision for me to make because I wanted to go into a program that I already had great work experiences within, and I had lots of passion for.

“Helping others to learn about health and safety and to be able to keep them safe while they’re working … that means something.”

 

The program I picked at Anderson College was the Occupational Health and Safety program. I have many years of experience in this field, and it has already changed my life. Being able to help co-workers, businesses, and the environment is the best thing that a person can do. Helping others to learn about health and safety and to be able to keep them safe while they’re working … that means something.

The Anderson staff member who was always there for me was Bradley Dedrick; he was my advisor. I remember talking to him on the phone a few times when my class had been moved to a different date. He did everything to keep me updated on the situation, which is more than I have to say about any of my previous college experiences. My whole family was there for me during this time. Especially my wife. She believes in me and that I can do anything when I put my mind to it.

“Remember, you will be the foundation, wherever you go, for health and safety. Believe in yourself and you will change lives.”

 

The things I like about this program are when the instructors speak to us with knowledge and prepare us for the real world in this career. Also, I enjoy speaking about my past experiences with my fellow classmates. The best thing overall is when everyone helps each other out with the problems that we are dealing with so we can have a better understanding of the concept, together. Even though I have a hearing disability everyone treats me the same way they want to be treated.

When you are working in this field, always make sure that you are aware of your surroundings and don’t be afraid to speak out about anything that deals with health and safety. Remember, you will be the foundation, wherever you go, for health and safety. Believe in yourself and you will change lives.
