This master is designed to contribute to the development of competent occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals.
A multidisciplinary background is needed to operate successfully in the broad field of OSH. The course therefore incorporates training sessions on the topics and disciplines relevant to OSH. The training focuses not only on OHS issues but also on the development of organizational, managerial and inter-personal skills. Specific study visits are planned to offer direct interaction with experts in the field. Visits to 12 different productive settings in Italy are planned in order to offer direct interaction with experts in the field.

The master course will have three phases, one consisting of 20 weeks online distance learning, another consisting of 11 weeks residential training at the ITC-ILO campus in Turin, Italy and another distance phase of 21 weeks for the preparation of the dissertation.

1st Phase: Preparatory Internet-based distance learning

. This phase includes 370 hours for self-studying and exercises and 180 hours for preparing and submitting the assessments.

Participants will be introduced to the fundamentals and basic concepts of the OSH through the following eight modules:

Module A1: Introduction to the occupational safety and health.

Module A2: Occupational Safety.

Module A3: Occupational Hygiene.

Module A4: Occupational Medicine.

Module A5: Occupational Psychosociology and Ergonomics.

Module A6: National OSH Governance.

Module A7: Organization of OSH at the enterprise level.

Module A8: Participatory approaches for the improvement of the working conditions.

This phase is preparatory. It will enable participants with different levels and fields of knowledge to reach an adequate and homogeneous level for taking advantage of the residential phase.

2nd Phase: Residential phase of Turin

. This phase will include classroom training (315 hours), study visits to selected enterprises and related training sessions (125 hours), and 110 hours of assessment.
Instructors will use lectures, discussions, exercises and other interactive learning activities to strike a balance between theory and practice and to stimulate discussion among the participants and professors. A practical approach based on the analysis and resolution of OSH issues will be taken.

The contents are split into 11 topics (one for each week). The modules in this phase are:

Module 1: Safety techniques.

Module 2: Management competences.

Module 3: Major hazard control.

Module 4: OSH management systems.

Module 5: Physical agents.

Module 6: Occupational hygiene techniques.

Module 7: Occupational toxicology and medicine.

Module 8: Ergonomics.

Module 9: Psychosocial factors & health promotion.

Module 10: Teaching skills.

Module 11: Organization and management

3rd Phase: Preparation of Master thesis

Participants will work individually in their country for the preparation of their Master thesis, assisted at distance by tutors and professors with OSH expertise.

Deadline for Application: 30 June 2015
