Master in Occupational Safety and Health

Public and private sector organizations throughout the world are increasingly concerned with improving occupational safety and health (OSH). In both developed and developing countries, the rapid pace of technological change, combined with the persistence of unsafe or environmentally threatening working conditions, has served to focus attention on the need to create a safe, healthy working environment and to promote a new safety culture at the workplace. Organizations increasingly seek OSH professionals who can catalyse these processes, and it is not always easy to find professionals with the right skills.

Becoming a safety and health professional requires multidisciplinary training. The OSH profession calls for a broad-based educational background combined with specialized knowledge in physical sciences (medicine, physics, chemistry and engineering) and social sciences (behaviour, motivation and communication) together with the principles and concepts of management.

Accordingly, the University of Turin, Italy, in partnership with the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITC-ILO),the International Labour Office(ILO) and the International Commission of Occupational Health (ICOH)is offering a Master course in Occupational Safety and Health. This one-year programme, to be held in English, includes an Internet-based distance learning phase, a face-to-face residential period on the ITC/ILO's campus in Turin followed by another distance phase for the preparation of the dissertation.

The proposed programme combines the advantages of the academic experience and the international training experience in OSH of the organizing partners. An international approach has been applied to the contents, the methodology development as well as to the composition of the training team.
