Course content

Workers with good physical and mental wellbeing perform their jobs better and contribute more to economic growth. Many organisations have therefore realised that they should take a proactive approach to wellness, rather than focusing on illness and absence management. This has created a need for highly skilled health, safety and wellbeing managers.

A key component of this course is a a major piece of independent work, where you will focus on a specific area of interest and develop an in-depth project or dissertation.

You will study health and safety regulation and legislation, communication, management tools, risk assessment, control and mitigation for a range of workplace hazards typical in most industries and organisations. You will also examine related issues such as the impact of societal factors on health in the workplace, and the wider public health agenda.
