CENTRE FOR SAFETY EDUCATION

CENTRE FOR SAFETY EDUCATION


The Centre for Safety Education was established in 2015 to develop competence in:
- Theory and Practice of Health, Environment, Safety and Security issues
- Organization and management of HESS (Health, Environment, Safety and Security in Industries and other Establishments
- Enabling candidates further their career at the M.Sc level

The Centre was borne out of the need to bridge the yawning gap in safety as required in the oil & gas and allied industries and the society at large. The Centre was established in collaboration with the Institute of Safety Professionals of Nigeria (ISPoN).  The Centre offers programmes at the Professional Diploma and Post Graduate levels both on Part-Time and Full-Time programmes.

It came into existence in the 2015/2016 academic session with 16 students and 40 students being admitted into the Diploma and Post Graduate programmes respectively. The 2016/2017 academic session had 6 and 44 students admitted into the Diploma and Post Graduate programmes respectively while the 2017/2018 academic session had 10 and 23 students admitted into the Diploma and Post Graduate programmes apiece.

The Centre takes Field Study as a priority which serves as a convergence between theory and expected practice in the field. Students from the Centre are highly sought after as they have full affiliation to the certification of the Institute of Safety Professionals of Nigeria (ISPoN).
