Researchers have already highlighted the safety and health issues in workplaces. The necessity of these issues and their close relations to the environment have more transparently called for the management control of three critical dimensions of Health, Safety, and the Environment (HSE). Furthermore, following the rapid development of technology and the complexity of the activities tailored to the needs of companies and industries, a set of guidelines called HSE was developed to minimize the damages to human, equipment, and environment. Therefore, today presenting the academic education of HSE management system as a university Major, especially in universities affiliated with the Ministry of Health and Medical Education, like the University of Social Welfare and Rehabilitation Sciences seems necessary. In particular, USWR, besides rendering health, treatment, and rehabilitation services is a provider of the third level of the health system. Therefore, considering the importance of the issue, approximately a quarter century history of USWR establishment, and the fundamental nature of the health and prevention areas, this university attempted to use the comprehensive view of HSE management, to complete its activities in the field of Welfare and Rehabilitation Sciences. This paper aimed to investigate the necessity of establishing the HSE management Major at the USWR. The investigation was conducted using library review research, field study, community wisdom, and expert knowledge. The obtained data and results suggested that the USWR and its subsidiary centers recognized establishing HSE Major as beneficial in expanding research and science fields in rehabilitation services. It may also help pay more attention to the elderly, disabled, and children, both in terms of occupational hazards, and the general safety and various levels of life. Further in-depth research in these areas can ultimately help improve the wellbeing of all society members.
