Occupational health psychology is the application of psychology to improve the quality of work life and to protect and promote the safety, health, and well-being of workers and of their families. As occupational health psychology is an interdisciplinary field of study, this course reviews fundamental theories and explores findings from cutting-edge research in industrial/organizational psychology, health psychology, epidemiology, public health, and occupational and environmental health. The objective of this course is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the various factors (e.g. physical and non-physical) that affect workers’ physical and psychological health and well-being and to apply the knowledge to health and safety issues in the modern workplace.
