The Master of Science Safety and Health programme aims to provide safety practitioners with an enhanced level of knowledge which supports a career not only as a health and safety practitioner, but as a practitioner and manager of the health and safety process in both the private and public sectors, and with the ability to engage in research and practice development.  It is anticipated that such a practitioner will have the ability to make a significant contribution to their organisation, the community, the advancement of the health and safety profession and wider society.


Students during their study will have acquired key knowledge, and developed the advanced skills that are associated with, pragmatic competent risk management strategies and techniques.  Students successfully completing the programme will also have fulfilled the required professional body learning outcomes, as required by the accrediting professional body, Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), and will be eligible for Graduate Membership and the opportunity to progress to Chartered Safety Practitioner status.


Such practitioners will have developed the ability and attitudes to critically identify, evaluate, develop, and deliver occupational health and safety issues in a range of settings, contributing to and securing enhanced personal and team practice through research, the continuation of personal professional development and lifelong learning.

•    Act autonomously to plan and implement tasks in an organised and professional manner;
•    Advance their knowledge and understanding of risk, and risk management in a holistic context;
•    Demonstrate a critical awareness of current practice and be able to apply research methodology to contribute to practice development;
•    Apply self-development techniques to enhance and apply their knowledge.
