Où et quand

Début Lieu



Le meilleur de la formation Some years ago I completed a Diploma in Safety, Health and Welfare at Work in UCC. I am grateful I got into this Masters, because I owe my current job to it. After completing this Masters, I started working in a large construction company in London, called Murphy Group. I started there as a Safety Adviser and now I am able to apply all my knowledge and techniques acquired during the masters. Not only do I work on site, but I also perform office duties. My favourite subject was Psychosocial Epidemiology and in this company I can identify stress factors, deal with them and apply techniques to solve them. I am really grateful to all their teachers and patience.

À améliorer Nothing bad.
