Occupational health and safety (OHS) scientists are concerned with identifying, analysing and preventing workplace injury, illness and fatality. Globally, more than 2 million people* die each year from work-related accidents and diseases - a statistic that continues to grow alongside the expansion of global industrialisation.

Our OHS degree programs were developed in response to industry demands, and you'll learn from Australia's leading OHS experts.As an undergraduate you'll learn about industry hazards within the context of OHS disciplines of occupational hygiene, ergonomics, occupational health, safety science, and risk management, and you'll delve deeper into these topics as a postgraduate. As a graduate of either degree program level, you'll leave UQ with a unique combination of theoretical and technical knowledge, advanced communication skills and a keen sense of justice.
