Improving environmental health and safety performance within your
organization requires an in-depth understanding of management principles
and the leadership skills to drive change. You need to be able to build
leadership buy-in for health, safety, and environmental initiatives,
lead teams effectively, and create strategies for integrating EHS
principles into the culture of your organization, including in a crisis.

In particular, the COVID-19 pandemic has called for EHS leaders to
take on and delegate many new and non-traditional environmental health
and safety duties. From testing how to best disinfect disposable masks
using radiation to organizing the collection of PPE from labs for
distribution at hospitals, EHS professionals are playing a wide range of
roles in responding to the pandemic that call for adept leadership
skills.

In this program, you will develop the management skills needed to
improve the EHS function in your organization, while gaining the
leadership skills needed to lead teams, make decisions, build
stakeholder buy-in, and both generate and sustain change. You will
develop skills in the critical areas of leadership and management with
the objective of bridging the gap between environmental health and
safety technical skills and leadership skills essential for achieving
functional excellence.
