Abstract
The Occupational Safety and Health Training Grant program at Colorado State University was described. During the last 5 years, the goals of the grant program included improving the industrial hygiene education in the baccalaureate environmental health program, improving the master's degree program, and developing a PhD program in industrial hygiene. New graduate courses were added to the training center including occupational safety, ergonomics, and aerosol technology which were added as standard offerings. A PhD program was established and approved in 1989, making this the only industrial hygiene program in the Rocky Mountain West where this degree was offered. The undergraduate program provides a sound education in the basic physical, chemical, social and biological sciences as well as in the humanities. During the final two undergraduate years extensive specialization occurs in environmental health courses. Of the 130 baccalaureate students placed into industrial hygiene since 1974, 32% entered OSHA, 18% began with State OSHA programs, 3% entered the military, 31% to private industry and 16% went on to graduate or advanced professional training.
