Traditionally, organisations have employed graduates from various disciplinary areas to fill OHS and EM roles. However, there is an increasing trend for companies and government organisations to seek graduates who can occupy both the OHS and EM roles.
Convergence of the OHS and environmental management roles is common in mining, manufacturing and construction industries where the production processes have both on-site and off-site impacts. Government and other industries are starting to follow this trend.
