Concentration: Occupational Safety (Code: SFM)
Starting in Fall 2018, this concentration has been consolidated into the Environmental and Occupational Health concentration.
The Occupational Safety concentration is intended for students with backgrounds in science or engineering seeking a professional public health career in occupational safety. In addition to core public health courses, the concentration builds upon a variety of courses enabling the student to recognize, evaluate and control existing and potential safety hazards due to faulty equipment, process design, chemical storage and handling. Students are trained to apply these safety principles in assessing engineering controls, personal protective techniques, administrative practices, conducting facility audits and to know when to consult with other environmental and occupational health and safety professionals to prevent or control work related injuries, illnesses or discomfort in the workplace. The program is a collaborative effort between the College of Public Health and the College of Engineering.
