Occupational Health and Safety Management

Good employers now recognise that managing health and safety has not only legal and moral imperatives, but also makes good business sense.

At Loughborough University we have an international reputation as a top-ten UK business school that has been delivering professionally recognised qualifications in occupational health and safety management for more than 35 years. Our qualifications equip you to make better informed decisions concerning the management of occupational health and safety and drive improved organisational performance in all areas.

The School is regarded as internationally leading in teaching and nationally leading on research on a wide range of subjects related to organisational and business resilience. Our researchers are internationally recognised, and funded, across intelligence and security, crisis management, emergency management, fire safety, technology and organisational resilience and the political risk and stability across regions. Our staff all have very strong and enduring links to practitioner communities, and indeed many of them have come into universities from outside careers.
