Postgraduate course. Face-to-face.


UPC School

Understanding the industrial and environmental safety framework and how to apply it to each specific situation is essential in ensuring the smooth running of any activity in the sector. This applies to the use, operation and maintenance of facilities and equipment and production, and the use or consumption, storage and recycling of industrial products.

This postgraduate course in Industrial and Environmental Safety trains real specialists in a thorough knowledge of and how to apply the system of mandatory provisions created to prevent and limit risks in a business environment, and how to provide protection against accidents and disasters capable of causing harm to people, property or the environment. Every company must study the processes by which risks in the industry are minimised, and apply and renew them on a dynamic and constant basis.

Industrial safety does not only affect technical factors in its facilities or equipment, but also the safety of the workers themselves. Every company must take responsibility for complying with a range of regulations and conditions that guarantee workers' safety and protection from the workplace hazards arising from the use of its facilities.

The postgraduate course is aimed at technical and professional managers who work in sectors as diverse as maintenance of industrial facilities, vehicles, buildings, and infrastructure; construction and engineering; occupational hazards prevention, and of course specialists who work in the public sector.
