Featured Course


Offered By: The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus

The Occupational Health & Safety Leadership programme focuses on the psychology of management and leadership in the promotion of occupational health and safety at work.

The MSc/PGDip in Occupational Health & Safety Leadership is designed around two central activities: 1) identifying and managing contemporary risks to health and safety and 2) developing effective leadership strategies, ultimately leading to the creation and promotion of healthy and productive workers; and healthy, safe and productive organisations.

This programme presents health and safety leadership within a problem-solving framework, where the two principal activities, identifying and managing risk and developing effective leadership strategies interact with one another and at the level of the individual and the organisation. These activities are underpinned by evidence-based applied psychological science exemplified through sound methodology and applied research. All three ultimately lead to the promotion of healthy, productive employees and the creation of healthy, safe and productive organisations.

This MSc/PGDip is an executive programme for senior managers, applied psychologists, human factors specialists, occupational health and safety managers or practitioners, and for those who have an active interest in contemporary issues in relation to the management of health and safety at work.

The MSc requires the completion of 120 credits of taught modules plus (i) an empirical research project worth 60 credits or (ii) one major (40 credits) and one minor (20 credits) dissertation on topics relevant to their specialist area of interest in occupational health and safety.
