Austin landed his first broadcasting gig before he even completed Herzing's training program in 2016.

Do Occupational Health & Safety Officers Really Save Lives? Yes...Here’s How

Sep 9, 2019 9:56:19 AM

Accidents on job sites and work-related deaths are a major problem in Canada. The official numbers from the Workers’ Compensation Boards of Canada say 1000 people die every year on-the-job.  

But industry studies suggest this number is actually much higher—close to 10x higher than those official reports claim (because not all incidents get reported to a compensation board). 

Every year on April 28th, Canada observes a national day of mourning for workplace tragedies. This day serves to remind us of the pain and suffering caused by jobsite injuries and deaths—to families, loved ones, and entire communities. 

It’s also a stark reminder that many of these accidents are preventable.

Health care aides (HCAs) are in high demand in Winnipeg, and across most of Canada. Our rapidly aging population and dwindling health care budgets have long-term care facilities bursting at the seams.

Meanwhile, many seniors are opting to stay in their own homes for longer, creating a need for trained health care aides who can assist them to live safely on their own.

It's always really exciting to catch up with Herzing grads, and see how much their lives have changed since finishing school and starting a brand new career.

Health Care Aide graduate, Sheri Richard, is a great example. She switched career paths later in life, when she could no longer find work in her field and needed a new direction.

Sheri knew she wanted to help people, so she started looking around for quick training options. A 5-month Health Care Aide Diploma was an ideal fit.

And even though she has 3 children and a very busy schedule, Sheri took the leap and started the program. Turns out, it was the best decision she ever made.

Here's what she told us about heading back to school, starting her Health Care Aide career, and where she's working now.
