Occupational and environmental physicians evaluate the interaction between work and health. OEM physicians understand the physical, chemical, biological, and social environments of the workplace, and the health outcomes of environmental exposures.
Industrial hygiene is the science of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling workplace conditions. Industrial hygienists detect the extent of worker exposure and employ engineering, work practice controls, and other methods to control potential health hazards.
OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY & HEALTH ENGINEERING
This program trains engineers to anticipate, identify, evaluate and resolve occupational safety and health hazards through engineering design. The curriculum includes safety engineering, systems safety, ergonomics, and legal aspects of health and safety.
ERGONOMICS AND BIOMECHANICS
To train individuals in the theory, clinical, and practical application of occupational musculoskeletal ergonomics and biomechanics. The graduate program of Ergonomics and Biomechanics prepares graduate students for academic, public, and professional careers in the fields involving the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders, injuries, and disabilities that result from the interaction of individuals and environmental factors. The program offers Master of Science (MS) and Doctoral (PhD) degree programs, and an Advance Certificate in Ergonomics.
The Continuing Education Program increases occupational safety and health knowledge and skills of workers in the Region through education and training. The CE Program strives to make workplaces safer to reduce workplace injury and illness.
Grants ranging from $5,000 to $12,000 are available to occupational health and safety researchers in Federal Region II. Research should be in the occupational health and safety field and should focus on the NIOSH/NORA research priorities.
