Bachelor of Science (Hons) Environmental, Occupational Safety and Health

Global environmental problems such as climate change, pollution and depletion of natural resources have adversely affected human health and caused more diseases. It has become an important global agenda which leads to the emergence of environmental protection legalisations related to the control of hazardous substances, green technologies, green materials and waste treatment technologies. 


Similarly, work environment has changed drastically with concerns of employees being exposed to hazardous substances, heavy machineries and occupational diseases. Since the passing of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, much of the attention has been on employers to protect their employees from workplace hazards. 


The Bachelor of Science (Hons) Environemental, Occupational Safety and Health is a unique multidisciplinary programme that combines the study of 'environmental health' and 'occupational safety and health'. 


This programme provides a coherent body of professional knowledge, technical skills and soft skills with the aims to produce competent professionals who can adapt to different roles and responsibilities in a challenging and dynamic work environment.
