MSc Safety, Health and Environment
Occupational safety and health aims to prevent accidents, ill-health and other losses arising from work and work activities. The last few years have also seen safety professionals becoming increasingly responsible for environmental issues and, with current concern about climate change, this responsibility will almost certainly grow.
This programme covers all aspects of occupational safety, health and environment. Significant emphasis is placed on learning and research and one of the first courses that students take is Critical Thinking, which provides them with the skills necessary to take full advantage of their studies.
The aims of the programme are:
- To develop the students research and analytical skills
- To develop a wider and more in-depth understanding of occupational health, safety and environment theory and practice.
This programme offers enhanced skills for those already working in the field of occupational health and safety.
