Student Profiles

Student profiles from Kuwait.

Mohammad Hasan - MSc Occupational Health and Safety

“Working as an infection control nurse and health and safety representative in a Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) hospital gave me a great sense of HSE awareness. One of the objectives of KOC is to develop an organisational culture that is mindful, informed, and fair with respect to Health & Safety. We continue to create a health programme for thousands of employees working in rural and remote project areas. We need to anticipate, evaluate, and set control measures of workplace environmental health hazards which may cause sickness, or impair health and well-being. Finding this graduate programme at NUI Galway has set my future goals and will provide a better outcome for our employee training and control plan. This is a dynamic programme which could help you in developing a better future for your workplace, no matter what your background.”
