Master of Health, Safety and Environment

The Master of Health, Safety and Environment aims to equip individuals with the specialised skills and advanced knowledge required for professional practice or research in occupational health and safety (OHS) and environmental management (EM). Graduates will have the capacity to lead and influence the development of high standards of OHS and EM.

Traditionally, organisations have employed graduates from various disciplinary areas to fill OHS and EM roles. However, there is an increasing trend for companies and government organisations to seek graduates who can occupy both the OHS and EM roles.

Convergence of the OHS and environmental management roles is common in mining, manufacturing and construction industries where the production processes have both on-site and off-site impacts. Government and other industries are starting to follow this trend.
