Course description

Safety / HSE Cases - part-time distance learning course - postgraduate Certificate of Professional Development

This distance learning Safety / HSE Cases course delivers a full overview of the aim, uses and content of a Safety / HSE case, with a specific focus on best practice approaches to fulfilling legal, industry and company requirements.

Delivered via the Risktec Online learning environment, the part-time programme addresses the different types of safety and HSE cases used along the project lifecycle, as well as exploring the distinct approaches taken in different industries. Highlighting the relationship between the case, supporting studies and management system, the course enables students to:

  • Assess the role of the HSE case in HSE management
  • Outline the content of a case
  • Develop a plan for the construction of a safety/HSE case
