Safety & Health Expo 2019

University of Strathclyde offers Safety & Risk Management Qualification

The University of Strathclyde will be inviting Safety & Health Expo visitors to discover more about its postgraduate programme in Safety and Risk Management, designed to develop highly effective Occupational Safety and Health Practitioners capable of operating across the full spectrum of working environments.

The programme is delivered through part time, online distance learning, enabling those with full time work commitments to participate and study in their own time, from any location, and achieve a valuable qualification of benefit to both the individual and the organisation.

Written and supported by a dedicated team of tutors / practitioners engaged in health and safety practice across a variety of workplace settings, this course offers a unique opportunity to acquire knowledge and expertise in a highly practical context. Each student is supported by a personal tutor throughout their studies.

Cedric Auge student testimonial‘I cannot recommend this course more highly if you are fully intent on pursuing a career in this area. It will be a lot of work, but if committed, you will find the support you need to succeed in your education and certainly thereafter professionally’. Cedric Auge, MSc Safety & Risk Management Student.

The Postgraduate Certificate (year 1) is recognised by the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) for Graduate Level Membership (GradIOSH). For those who already hold GradIOSH membership, direct entry to the Postgraduate Diploma (year 2) is offered, meaning students can achieve their MSc in less than two years. Open to students from a range of industries and locations, the programme offers flexible entry and exit points meaning students can exit at any level of the programme and receive an appropriate award. Prospective students without a first degree are welcome, with relevant work experience and training being considered for entry.

The programme continues to receive positive feedback from its students, enabling them to be a ‘better health and safety professional’. Students from the programme were recently recognised at an International safety conference where they claimed the top two positions in a student competition entitled ‘future leaders of OSH’. The winning student submitted a paper that examined how safety is communicated to contractors and the techniques that could be implemented to improve this communication pathway. The second paper examined workers in the rail maintenance and construction industry and considered fatigue management in 24/7 rail operations.

In addition, the University offer continuing professional development courses, including the highly popular IOSH Managing Safely and a Professional Certificate in Radiation Protection. The IOSH Managing Safely course is held on campus in Glasgow City Centre and is led by an experienced Chartered Safety and Health professional. The course runs over three days and is often offered on consecutive weeks to minimise the disruption to the working week.
