Statement of InterestI am an Occupational Health and Safety Manager inhealth-care setting looking to advance my already successfulprofessional and academic record by finding a suitablegraduate entry level position with a progressive employer.My aim is to apply the knowledge and skills that I havegained to positively contribute to the success of theorganization I will be part of, as I continue building myknowledge base in occupational health and safetymanagement.
