Course content

If you’re a new graduate or an industry professional wanting to broaden and deepen your knowledge in a wide range of areas in health, safety and environmental management, then this master’s course is for you.

Designed as a direct response of growing industry demand and shortage of skilled workforce with this crucial knowledge across a range of disciplines and profession, you’ll identify, assess and solve health, safety and environmental problems by applying the principles of good management.

The environment is becoming a global issue and international development is linked to the economics of natural resources. Health, safety and environmental management has become critical to the operation of both large and small organisations. The public and private sectors require staff with detailed environmental knowledge at regional, national and international level. Businesses are increasingly looking outside Europe to Asia, Australasia and the Americas to inform their best practices and maintain market share.

You’ll complete the course prepared for a professional career requiring high levels of judgement, team-working, leadership, initiative, delegation and decision-making responsibilities.
