The specific educational goals that students in the degree programme in Environment and Workplace Prevention Techniques must reach are as follows:
-learn the fundamental principles of physics, chemistry, biology, statistics, and IT in order to recognise and assess the magnitude of environmental and occupational risk factors on human health;
-recognise the biological principles that govern the key mechanisms for the functioning of human organs and apparati;
-gain a foundation in microbiology, biochemistry, human physiopathology and general pathology, in order to conduct a proper healthcare assessment of a person's work and everyday environment;
-know how to tackle occupational safety and health problems using the scientific method;
-be familiar with the leading food-storage and -safety technologies, and be able to assess risks along the food supply chain;
-gain an understanding of the standards established for professional ethics, as well as legal and forensic standards applicable to the profession;
-have a foundation in general psychology, environmental, regional, and organisational sociology;
-understand the basics of pharmacology and toxicology as needed to define the risk of workplace exposure to xenobiotics, and recognise the key mechanisms of toxicity and detoxification, including with respect to carcinogenic substances and agents;
-know the hygiene, structural, and system requirements for commercial and manufacturing operations seeking health-department permits and other authorisations;
-be familiar with regulations governing environmental safety, safety on the job, and safety in everyday life;
-understand the standards and regulations that govern the practice and responsibilities of this profession;
-gain the cultural and professional bases to guide accident- and illness-prevention activities for the individual and the community;
-be familiar with, and gain specific expertise in occupational safety and health, including foundations and methodologies for radiation protection;
-be familiar with the basic principles of occupational injury and disease prevention within various manufacturing segments;
-gain the knowledge necessary to identify and assess the elements in the environment having an impact on health, whether in the air, water, soil, food, or in a workplace.
Graduates of the Environment and Workplace Prevention Techniques programme will have gained expertise in both theory and practice, and will have honed skills in analysis, and in vetting the efficacy and efficiency of efforts to safeguard and promote health, as well as communication abilities for both routine and emergency management of issues from a healthcare-science perspective. Graduates thus have a range of employment opportunities, handling preventative efforts as well as inspections and supervision, whether in the public sector (AO, ASL [Health Departments], ARPA [non-profit], ISPESL [Occupational Safety and Health Inspectorate], local entities, etc.) as well as through contracted inspection and prevention entities, or through organisations providing personnel training, or services relating to health safeguards and accident/illness prevention.
As employees or consultants in the private sector, graduates may independently provide professional technical support in the form of planning and organising how work is conducted, in terms of occupational safety and health; in cooperation with the health and safety office, they identify efforts to ensure worker safety and environmental protection. They work in concert with employers and businesses to analyse risks within a company, and generate risk-assessment documents (for workplace safety, food safety, and environmental safety). They conduct environmental surveys to monitor the salubriousness of an environment, whether at home or at work.
