Welcome to the Australian OHS Education Accreditation Board web site.
Our vision is that OHS professional education is based on strong scientific and technical concepts, evidenced-informed, delivered by suitably competent persons and so recognised by the profession, government, industry and the community.
Our core activity is through accreditation to recognise those programs that meet standards established by the Board. We also advocate for a sustainable environment for OHS education and are the custodians of the OHS Body of Knowledge for Generalist OHS Professionals.
Developed by the Australian OHS Education Accreditation Board to assist organisations to evaluate their OHS capability requirement and where appropriate support development of OHS capability of their OHS personnel. Click here to access the Capability Package.
