Summary

Public awareness of hazards and risks has enhanced the importance of safety assessment and management in today's increasingly litigious society. Risk and safety issues need to be evaluated in a structured and calculated manner but in the light of an overall organisational strategy.

This course aims to provide students with advanced knowledge of risk assessment techniques, the public and individual perception of risk, and how decisions are made in competitive business markets. The course focuses on practical applications of safety methodologies, ergonomics and human factors, and safety and risk management techniques. It will develop students' skills to undertake safety studies and manage safety and risk to the best national and international standards.
