Programme Aims

Occupational Health and Safety is a major concern to employers and employees across all industry sectors in small, medium and large organisations.

Preventable accidents, lost time and errors cost businesses both time and money not to mention the personal pain and suffering that many accidents at work bring to those affected.  Businesses with a Strategic Occupational Health and Safety Plan show lower injury rates while they enjoy higher productivity and employee morale.  Effective training and awareness is probably the most cost effective safety measure available to any company. Most workers and managers will be aware of and take action in the obvious areas, mostly in a reactive capacity. However, training sharpens the mind and increases the opportunity for a proactive systematic approach to managing workplace safety and health.

What Our Students Have to Say

TUS Flexible Learning offers access to a network of the greatest bunch of students ever, along with alumni, faculty, and business leaders both local and international. Working in a virtual world has not limited the access to any of these support networks and likely the main reason I have been able to get through the course while balancing work and family commitments. If you are considering taking that next step forward in your career, I would highly recommend the Master of Science program in TUS Flexible Online
