The aim of the MSc Occupational Safety, Health and Wellbeing of Cardiff Metropolitan University is to enable practitioners to develop holistic approaches to enhancing organisational safety and health through improved worker engagement and wellbeing.


Occupational Safety, Health and Wellbeing of Cardiff Metropolitan University is designed to enhance the students current understanding and application of occupational health and safety management by enabling  students to develop a more holistic approach to influencing worker and organisational performance through the contemporary concepts of worker engagement and wellbeing.


Since completing the MSc Occupational Health, Safety and Wellbeing in July 2015 I have been working as an Occupational Health and Safety Officer at a Waste Management Company called Averda. 

I am really happy with my work and found myself at an advantage at the recruitment stage given what I have learnt in my degree about OHS management.  The course work combined with the theory and experiences from our lecturers was particularly insightful.

Currently, I am working on a new project to conduct a Health and Safety assessment of all the company projects and sites all over the world, including: UAE, KSA, Oman, Qatar, Jordan, Morocco, Congo and Gabon. Working internationally is really interesting, we have offices in London, and projects in Dublin and Galway.
