MS Occupational and technological risk management

The general context of the tightening of industrial risk management, with the implementation of PPRTs (Technological Risk Prevention Plan), as well as increased vigilance regarding the exposure of workers call for the training of specialists in the subject. Engineers must be able to deal with the technical and scientific aspects of the situations they face, while having expertise in the legal constraints and human factors. This is the whole point of this specialised master’s degree in Occupational and Technological Risk Management, accredited by the Conférence des Grandes Écoles.

At the end of this training, you will become executives specialising in health, safety and the environment. This master’s degree will give you the tools you need to meet people’s professional health and safety requirements and allow you to manage industrial risks while helping to achieve environmental conservation.
