Description

Across the world there is increasing demand for qualified and professional safety and hygiene professionals. Their roles and responsibilities now often encompass environmental issues. This programme is a novel approach to delivering health, safety and hygiene training and will allow a wider range of applicants to gain access to this growing field of employment.

Students who do not have an appropriate qualification in health and safety or occupational hygiene are required to successfully complete an introductory 'prerequisite' course before further study. Students wishing to register with the British Occupational Hygiene Society must complete a dissertation on occupational hygiene. The courses are delivered by distance learning combined with local tutorial support. Students are registered at a distance learning centre most convenient for them.

This programme is accredited by the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health and to Certificate level for the British Occupational Hygiene Society.

The university is investing £76 million in a new building to house the campus library, TV studios and academic facilities for disciplines including architecture, design and construction. Stockwell Street is a short walk from the Greenwich Campus and this programme will be delivered there from 2014.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To enable safety professionals from a wide range of backgrounds to achieve graduate status.
  • To provide membership of leading professional organisations through part time distance learning study.
  • To act as a launch pad for professionals new to occupational safety and health.
