Advanced Master in Risks Management and Well-Being in the Workplace [60.0] - GRB2MC
The Advanced Joint Master in Risk Management and Well-Being in the Workplace is designed to respond to the training needs of different categories of professionals in the field of safety in the work environment who must comply with the law on well-being of workers at work (1996) and the associated orders. The decree of 2003 defines the training requirements for three kinds of advisers in the specialized safety areas of ergonomics, industrial hygiene and psycho-social aspects of work including violence and moral or sexual harassment at work. The law stipulates that training in these three areas should be organized in the same way, including basic multidisciplinary training of 120 hours and specialized modules of 280 hours. Another decree about to be published uses this model (120+280) for the training of advisers in safety at work. To date, there is no programme in the French-speaking Community which satisfies these requirements, yet there is growing demand from business.
The aim is to provide the necessary training in an inter-university framework. In view of the fact that people currently undertaking such work must be regularized (by the end of 2009 at the latest) and of the pressing need for health and safety departments to be able to inform their staff about future training programmes, we are proposing to start off with the specialized areas of ergonomics and the psycho-social aspects. Additional specializations in industrial hygiene and safety at work may be added at a later stage.
To cover all the areas required by law, the Advanced Joint Master deals with the recognition of risk, the evaluation and improvement of work situations and the psycho-social aspects of understanding attitudes and behaviours.
The programme comprises 60 credits (400 hours) of training, divided as follows :
- core subjects of 15 credits for basic multidisciplinary training (120 hours), covering general training, general legal aspects including the role of different advisers in safety, ergonomics, health and well-being at work ;
- specialized modules of 30 credits each and the final dissertation of 15 credits which relates to the selected module :
- ergonomics : specialized training (280 hours) provides the knowledge and skills necessary to practice the profession (presentation of practical cases, active seminars), or
- the psycho-social aspects of work including violence and moral or sexual harassment: specialized training (280 hours) provides the knowledge and skills necessary to practice the profession (presentation of practical cases, active seminars).
The Advanced Joint Master is an inter-university training programme of 60 credits, open to students who hold a second cycle university degree.
The universities taking part in the programme are the University of Liège (Wallonia-Europe Academy), the Université libre of Brussels and the University of Mons-Hainaut (Wallonia-Brussels Academy) and UCL (Louvain Academy).
