“Throughout my journey, gaining recognition within the HSE industry has been relatively challenging. Thankfully, the Occupational Health, Safety and Wellbeing (OHSW) programme is made available to us in Singapore so that we can assert ourselves as highly skilled Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) professionals on a global stage. In line with the vision set forth by the Singapore Institution of Safety Officers (SISO), I look forward to attaining in-depth knowledge of HSE at DIMENSIONS. Upon successful completion of the programme, I am confident that I will be able to lead by example and thrive in a global marketplace. “
