Occupational Safety and Health

This programme gives students the knowledge and skills to protect workers from injuries and fatalities, prevent illness caused by work, promote health and wellbeing, advise employers on health and safety laws and work in groups to solve workplace safety issues. Students will learn how to prepare, implement and monitor safety management systems in the workplace. Our programme incorporates Enquiry Based Learning (EBL) which is a teaching method that allows students to work in teams to collaboratively solve work-based problems. Lecturers design the assessments to mirror what graduates will encounter in the workplace. Our students enter the workplace confident and competent in their abilities to work in teams as well as on their own.
