  • Instruct specialised professionals,with the proper skills and with the necessary professional competencies to develop, coordinate and manage prevention and protection activities against occupational risks in different economic activity sectors;
  • Contribute to the development of R&D activities within a technical and scientific multidisciplinary area whilst simultaneously socially sensitive;
  • To place FEUP as the national leader in a rapidly developing area of knowledge, at a national level, thus contributing to Portugal’s international visibility in this field.
  • To achieve these goals, the MESHO is structured in two branches: technology and safety and emergency.

  • To develop professional risk assessment procedures;
  • To conceive, programme, develop, manage and evaluate prevention and protection measures;
  • To technically coordinate the activities within the scope of health and safety at work, ensuring the insertion and technical orientation of the professionals in the area of security and hygiene at work;
  • To participate in the organisation of work in design, construction and fruition phases;
  • To manage the process of external resources usage in prevention and protection activities;
  • To ensure the organisation of the necessary documentation for company prevention management;

  • To promote the integration of prevention in the companies’ communication systems, preparing and providing the necessary specific information;
