As health professionals, it is extremely important that opticians know the ins and outs of occupational health and safety. We have a duty, not just to ourselves, but to our patients. Therefore, we offer not just one, but two OH&S courses, to give you a full breadth of knowledge on the subject. Both courses can be taken for credit.
