2. What you will study
Subjects reflect areas of professional practice and are designed to provide students with an understanding of the management of Health, Safety and Risk. They also take a strategic view of this, and of related areas such as Corporate Social Responsibility, Ethics and the Environment. In addition to the legal perspectives students will be encouraged to consider the management, human and psychological factors essential to the successful implementation of Health, Safety and Risk strategy.
A key feature of the course is the incorporation of a work based project. In the course of this project, students are given the opportunity to demonstrate the ability to apply their knowledge and understanding of health, safety and risk to a current work related problem or issue.
