We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Health and Safety Issues equip postgraduates with the necessary skills to manage risk, health and safety in a workplace environment.
Courses are typically taught MSc degrees, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Business Studies.
Risks to safety arise in all kinds of working environments. Many workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities are largely avoidable. A Masters in this field will train you to manage and prevent them effectively.
Training typically covers techniques in safety engineering, industrial hygiene and hazardous material control. Regardless of the business or hazard, organisations must follow a set of protocols a set out by government legislation. As such, you will learn about essential regulatory practices within various industries. These include quality control measures, operations management and emergency planning.
Careers are highly varied, ranging from health and safety management, risk assessing, and facilities auditing. You may also branch into insurance broking, policy-making for regulatory agencies, or consultancy for commercial business.
