Designated as high-risk or safety-sensitive, there is a large multitude of occupations which require employees to perform precarious functions regularly, putting their health and wellbeing in peril. To improve workplace health and minimise safety hazards, the Master of Science in Occupational Safety, Health and Wellbeing programme focuses on the integration of hazard identification, risk assessment, priority planning and risk control strategies into the safety management process.
In conjunction with the radical knowledge of risk management strategies, students will be able to pick up the cardinal skills to differentiate between proactive and reactive approaches to safety, health and wellbeing management. Thenceforth, they will be able to evaluate the effectiveness in developing, maintaining and sustaining a positive working environment.
Upon successful completion, qualified students will be awarded the Master of Science in Occupational Safety, Health and Wellbeing by Cardiff Metropolitan University. As workplace safety remains the predominant priority of most organisations, this qualification provides graduates with a competitive edge in careers ranging from occupational safety and health specialist to environmental health and safety administrator.
