About the Course

Safety, Health and Risk Management in Process, Petroleum and Offshore Engineering

Addressing the residual risk that remains after design and engineering measures have been taken.

Safety and risk management are key to all industries. They are particularly important in the oil and gas industries, both upstream and downstream. This is because of the involvement in large inventories of flammable materials. There may be very serious consequences in any mishap.

This course is also delivered on at least one of the Faculty's Masters programmes at Newcastle University in Singapore, and you will attend alongside full and part time registered students. If you elect to study the full Masters' programme after completing the module, this is an available option for you.
