Occupational and Environmental Health - M6026

Occupational and Environmental Health

Expert master degree

This course equips workplace professionals with the skills and knowledge in quality-level occupational health and safety services in order to identify, prevent and manage occupational and environmental health risks and related health problems. Students will learn to systematically control related hazards and exposures within a broad range of workplace and community environments.

The course aims to enable students to take responsibility for high-level independent judgements and initiate, implement and evaluate risk management interventions within varied occupational and environmental contexts. It is particularly suitable for medical practitioners, nurses, allied health personnel, scientists and occupational health and safety managers. The course is offered by off-campus learning; however, compulsory block attendance is required each semester.
