MSc Occupational Hygiene

In a society, most concerned with process safety, I felt that people were usually neglected, so I started to do research on Human-Centred Safety and discovered Occupational Hygiene. My next search was to find a program whether Bachelor’s or Master’s in which to enrol. I searched abroad for both on-campus programs and online courses but none of them seemed to match the cost and timeframe of the University of Greenwich’s distance learning Masters through SBCS.

I found that checking my qualifications were simple and registration was also simple due to the Course Administrators and the Customer Service Agents. SBCS gave each student a personalized experience, catered to their needs. While the MSc Occupational Hygiene was challenging, success was attainable through research and constant communication with both international and local lecturers. In the classroom, each lecturer would use their own style of teaching geared towards keeping our attention and ensuring that we understood the content.

Although my focus was Human Centred Safety, the MSc in Occupational Hygiene provided a holistic approach to Organizational Safety. It taught me that once all areas were covered, the safety culture of the organization would improve, the employees would be happy and management would eventually reduce costs associated with accidents and compensation. I would recommend this program and institution to any person who is interested in the field of Health and Safety.
