We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Occupational Health involve advanced study of the ways in which workplace health standards are monitored and evaluated within industrial and commercial settings. Occupational Health can also be studied as a Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate.
Related subjects include Public Health and Occupational Health Nursing. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Business Management, Medicine or Nursing.
Occupational health professionals are essential when it comes to managing a variety of work-based hazards, and promoting organisational resilience through the health, safety and care of employees.
On an Occupational Health Masters course, you’ll be trained in the development and implementation of safety management systems for a range of organisations. This could include training in risk assessment and control, and the analysis of ergonomic and physical hazards.
Programmes normally cover law and ethics, biostatistics, epidemiology (the spread of disease) and evidence-based practice.
Careers in this field are highly varied. You might specialise in implementing policy on behalf of government bodies, regulating legislation in the workplace on behalf of health and safety agencies, or work within a company’s human resources (HR) department.
