Introduction

Given its interdisciplinary nature, the interuniversity master's degree in Occupational Health and Safety is aimed at university graduates who are interested in occupational risk prevention and health and safety at work and who meet the administrative requirements and have the required qualification. Since 1995, Occupational Risk Prevention Law 31/1195 and Royal Decree 39/1997 oblige companies to have health and safety resources that are organised as internal or external services that employ accredited technical staff.

The master's degree aims to train students in the knowledge, skills and competencies needed to take on high-level professional responsibilities in occupational risk prevention. Specialisation in three non-medical areas—Safety at Work, Industrial Hygiene, and Ergonomics and Applied Psychosociology—enables students to keep their technological knowledge up to date and to access doctoral studies. The master’s degree is structured so that the compulsory subjects provide them with tools and knowledge in the fields of economic management, quality, energy and built heritage, and in company management and construction sector projects.

The aim of the optional subjects and the master's thesis is for students to deepen their knowledge of the aspects of building construction management that most interest them (such as project management, the use of integral management tools or real estate marketing) as a step towards greater specialisation on a doctoral degree or to improve their professional standing.
