Introduction to the Master
OSH professionals need a multidisciplinary background to successfully operate in the broad field of OSH, therefore the programme incorporates training sessions on all of the topics and disciplines relevant to OSH. The University of Turin, Italy, in partnership with the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITCILO), is offering a Master course in Occupational Safety and Health. This one-year programme, to be held in English, includes an Internet-based distance learning phase, a face-to-face residential period on the ITCILO's campus in Turin, followed by another distance phase for the preparation of the dissertation. The training focuses not only on OSH issues but also on the development of organizational, managerial and interpersonal skills. Study visits to 13 different productive settings are planned in order to offer direct interaction with experts in the field. An international approach has been applied to the contents and the methodology development, as well as to the composition of the training team.
