Practical Training: Occupational Health Audit
Full course description
In this practical training, students will apply theories of occupational health psychology. Focusing on a specific occupation (e.g. wait staff, nursing staff), students will analyse general work characteristics and work demands and identify threats to health and well-being in that occupation. Furthermore, they will delineate interventions that may address these health threats. Results are described in a group report.
Students are able to:
- search for and acquire information on threats to occupational health and well-being of specific occupational groups;
- integrate this information and link it to theories of occupational health and well-being;
- propose and describe occupational health interventions to address these threats;
- work in a group and develop an informative, well-structured and concise report.
