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
