Learning outcomes

------------------------
MM: METODI E TECNICHE DELLA PREVENZIONE NELL'ANALISI E VALUTAZIONE DEI RISCHI
------------------------
To provide students with the methods of analysis, assessment and assessment of risks, highlighting the critical issues. Knowledge concerning the formalization of risk assessment. At the end of the teaching module the student must have acquired awareness of the impact of the assessment, both in terms of prevention and repression. It will have to be able to apply the principles and methods inherent in the VdR, understanding them and, as far as possible, correcting the distortions through the most relevant techniques also using official databases of national sites.
------------------------
MM: ERGONOMIA E FATTORI DI RISCHIO PSICOSOCIALE
------------------------
To acquire knowledge and understanding on health and safety prevention and health promotion and management in workplaces. To acquire, through field examples, knowledge and understanding about principles of occupational health, risk assessment, health surveillance, fitness for work, health education, legislation, with reference to different risk factors and a focus on ergonomics, organization and psychosocial factors, injuries as well as on vulnerable workers (such as immigrants, ageing workers), within a multidisciplinary framework. The student will acquire the awareness that in the professional activities of prevention technicians in the workplaces, there is necessity and opportunity to cooperate with the other occupational health and safety professionals at the workplaces, within programs of primary, secondary and tertiary prevention, as well as to deal with specific risk factors and the health and safety of the most vulnerable workers.
------------------------
MM: PROCESSI E RISCHI INDUSTRIALI
------------------------
This unit aims at illustrating the essential aspects of the most common industrial chemical processes. In particolar it will focus on safety concerns about dangerous compounds and their processing. Special attention will be dedicated to active and passive safety systems and to health risks evaluations.
