Stuart lectures at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. He is module leader for a number of occupational health, safety and wellbeing modules on both the BSc (Hons) Environmental Health and the MSc in Occupational Health, Safety and Wellbeing programmes.
Stuart has an MSc in Occupational Health and Safety, is a Chartered Member of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Teaching Academy.
Stuart has been a lecturer in Cardiff School of Health Sciences since January 2011 and the Programme Director for the MSc Occupational Health, Safety and Wellbeing programme since September 2013.
Whilst Stuart's background is in rapid Prototyping and industrial model making, a change in career in 2005 resulted in Stuart being appointed as the Health and Safety Advisor for the university, a role which established his current interest in occupational health and wellbeing management.
Recognising the changing shape of Occupational health, safety and wellbeing, Stuart's interests continue to focus upon the development, implementation and promotion of sustainable occupational Health & Wellbeing strategies and interventions in the workplace; and subsequently their effects on employee engagement, health and attendance.
Stuart continues to apply his knowledge in this field as a founding member of the Centre for Occupational Health and Wellbeing (EmWell) at Cardiff Metropolitan University. Stuart hopes to develop his interests in occupational health, safety and wellbeing further by starting his PhD in 2014.
