Interested in Writing a Case Study or Teaching Module for Minerva Canada?

Minerva Safety Management Education encourages and sponsors the research and publication of Case Studies and Teaching Modules, illustrating business effectiveness through Safety, Health, and Environmental (SHE) management. These resources are intended for use as teaching tools, demonstrating that SHE management has positive business outcomes such as improved profitability, reduced incidents and improved labour relations, productivity and quality.

When used in teaching, Case Studies enhance participants’ understanding of the interrelationship of SHE management with the events depicted and with the internal and external forces upon a business. Learning takes place through discussion of opinions within the student group.

Minerva also encourages and sponsors the research, development and publication of new Teaching Modules pertinent for new graduates entering the workplace and where current student teaching material is not readily available .
