Master of Science in Environmental, Health and Safety Management
Management of environmental, health and safety issues has changed significantly in the past twenty years. The emergence of voluntary standards and codes of conduct, including international standards, coupled with the need to manage costs and limited resources has resulted in a trend to move beyond regulatory compliance. Now, companies work toward sustainability through the use of integrated environmental, health and safety management systems, which are woven into key business processes.
Although they are distinct disciplines, environmental management, occupational health, and workplace safety share many technical, regulatory, and organizational characteristics. Today's professionals now need to be educated in all three areas.
The MS degree in environmental, health and safety management is designed for professionals or those planning a career in the field. The curriculum provides a solid foundation in both the technical and managerial aspects of developing, designing, and implementing environmental, health and safety management systems that can move organizations toward a more sustainable and socially responsible future.
