Why Occupational Health & Safety?
Shawn Landry was a journeyman lineman who, after a workplace accident, decided a health and safety role would be the best fit. Drawing from the fallout of his own injury, he passionately wants to be part of the reason his peers make it home every day.
“I had an accident ... so I really wanted to take safety and what happened to me to heart ... and drive that engine forward.”
Recognizing the importance of accountability, Shawn knew he needed education to balance with his experience to earn the respect necessary for communicating effectively both up and down the line. ``The CHSEP program I found was the perfect way to get back into academics and was very non-threatening, especially for someone who’s worked front line for so long. It was ‘I can do this’ and ‘I have the tools to do it.’``
