It is unquestionable that every work activity implies a risk for workers. This reality has generated a new business need, which requires the fulfillment of a set of specific obligations that are increasingly rigorous on the part of entrepreneurs.

These obligations are based on a set of specific regulations and regulations that start from an agency at the highest level, and are gradually incorporated into each of the countries, gradually adjusting to the local level.

If this is added to the increasingly broad social demand, which requires regulation and monitoring of health and safety conditions, the interest of organizations, regardless of their size, is to achieve management of the Occupational health and safety that allows them to control their risks and comply with current legislation.

It is in this aspect that the Master in Occupational Risk Prevention becomes an optimal instrument for the development of training in health and safety at a high level, thanks to the accumulated experience and teaching within this field.

The distance training program presented here responds to the new requirements, providing criteria, rigor and, above all, common sense, when transferring the health and safety policy to the organisation.

  • For academic and learning reasons there is a minimum duration of the Programme of one year.
  • The maximum time available to complete the Programme is two years. In this period of time, the student must have delivered all the corresponding evaluations, as well as the Final Project or Degree Thesis.
