Bachelor of Science (Hons) Safety, Health and Environmental ManagementAwarded by: Leeds Beckett University, UK

Programme Objectives

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) Safety, Health and Environmental Management programme aims to provide an education which equips students with a range of knowledge and practical skills, which will support a career as Health and Safety Practitioners in both the private and public sectors. It is anticipated that such a practitioner will have the ability to make a contribution to their organisations, the wider community, profession and wider society. Students will have acquired in-depth knowledge and developed appropriate related skills that are associated with, competent Risk Management strategies and techniques. Students successfully completing the programme will be prepared for the world of work as Health and Safety Practitioners. Such practitioners will have the ability and attitudes to develop, deliver and evaluate occupational health and safety issues in a range of settings, contributing to and securing enhanced professional practice through the continuing professional development and lifelong learning. Environmental Management as well as elements of Occupational Health and Well Being are also included within the course, because these areas are often included within the remit of the Health and Safety Practitioner, and whilst it involves a separate body of scientific, technical and legal knowledge, the same skills and competencies are required by practitioners in this area.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course student will be able to:

• Work professionally following both legislative and best practice requirements to address a complex range of occupational safety and health issues
• Demonstrate comprehensive knowledge and understanding of hazards in the workplace and application of practical control measures to control the hazards found that may adversely affect occupational health safety and welfare in all workplaces
• Function effectively in a dynamic digital global working environment through an ability to act autonomously, to plan and implement tasks in a professional manner, using a range of traditional and electronic methods or equipment
• Communicate to the different stakeholders involved, using digital and traditional methods, ensuring all levels of the workforce are provided with professional advice and that decisions can be understood by specialist and non-specialist audiences
• Apply research techniques and use of original thought to develop the professional knowledge that assists competence to be maintained
• Determine their personal professional development needs and adopt a reflective learning approach to support them operating effectively in a dynamic digital global working environment.
