Abstract
The occupational health and safety program at Saint Augustine's College, Raleigh, North Carolina, was described. The program which was developed with the assistance of a National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health grant was designed to provide students with specialized training in industrial hygiene in addition to extensive preparation in chemistry. The program led to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Industrial Hygiene. During the first 2 years the curriculum consisted of basic college courses in science and nonscience disciplines which provided a broad academic foundation that enhanced the student's ability to master more advanced courses. During the third and fourth years the focus was on industrial hygiene courses such as elements of industrial hygiene, industrial hygiene practices, occupational safety, toxicology, air pollutant sampling, and developing suitable laboratory skills. The students also satisfied other requirements by taking a foreign language, humanities, and more advanced courses in mathematics and chemistry. The authors conclude that the industrial hygiene program at St. Augustine's College is faithful to the spirit of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 by providing an opportunity for training professionals to fill immediate and long term professional shortages in occupational safety and health.
