SUSS Dialogue Session: BSc Human Factors in Safety / BSc Workplace Safety and Health

BSc Human Factors in Safety

Human Factors (also known as ergonomics) is concerned with how people interact with technology, and how their physical and operational environments affect them. It is the study of the capabilities and limitations of people applied to the design of systems, products and work environments to ensure that people are safe and healthy at work and are also able to perform effectively and efficiently.

The BSc Human Factors in Safety (BHFSY) programme covers key knowledge and skills in both the Human Factors discipline and Workplace Safety and Health (WSH).  We equip students with the know-how for anticipating, assessing and controlling workplace safety and health (WSH) hazards and for performing WSH audits, and provide you with skills and abilities to evaluate and design or redesign equipment, workplaces, environments and systems to improve safety and optimise performance using human factor principles and methodology.

The programme is accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), UK, and recognised by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM) for WSH Officer registration.

BSc Workplace Safety and Health

This programme aims to provide a more focused training in Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) for those aspiring to seek a career in safety. It is unique in that students are grounded in human factors fundamentals and principles in the lower-level courses and then focus on the workplace safety, health and environmental issues in the higher-level courses.

The programme is recognised by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM) for WSH Officer registration, and equips students with the skills and knowledge of evaluating and controlling hazards, and developing strategic initiatives to create a safer and healthier workplace, through a better appreciation of human physical, biological and cognitive strengths and limitations.
