In the Occupational Safety, Health and Environment course from Manchester Metropolitan University, you’ll study current and emerging legal and compliance issues, and consider the many factors that influence workplace safety and health, such as legionella, contaminated land and air quality.
You’ll learn how to formulate, implement and evaluate safety, health and environmental (SHE) management systems for an organisation, including concepts and techniques of occupational health and safety management.
Topics you’ll investigate include the principles and practices of risk management in the workplace, environmental protection and management, and the principal diseases of significance to public health.
You’ll develop your knowledge of hazard and operability analysis (HAZOP), major incident contingency plans (MICP), and occupational hygiene management. You’ll consider topics such as benchmarking safety and risk management and assessment of hazards, risks and dangers at work, including processes in the development and management of ISO 14001 (environmental management) and ISO 45001 (occupational health and safety management) standards.
As well as studying theory, you’ll have practical sessions. You’ll learn skills in how to identify, evidence and analyse concerns for safety at work, such as assessment and control of occupational risks that arise from exposure to hazards at work including noise levels and extreme working environments.
As a graduate, you’ll use your practical skills and academic knowledge to help ensure compliance with safety legislation and safety policies in a wide range of organisations, from large scale industries to small businesses.
You could develop your career in industries such as oil and gas, construction, manufacturing, or in relevant government departments.
Roles include occupational health and safety managers across all industry sectors, health and safety advisors, HSE auditors, and consultants.
