As the world's focus on workplace safety and regulations increases, demand for occupational health and safety (OHS) graduates has never been greater.
UQ's Bachelor of Occupational Health and Safety Science (Honours) is a multidisciplinary program covering a broad spectrum of study. You’ll learn scientific approaches to identifying, assessing and controlling chemical, physical and biological hazards, and learn about psychosocial health factors like stress, bullying, harassment and fatigue.
