Abstract
The occupational safety and health training program at Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas was described, and accomplishments during the previous 5 years were discussed. The training program provided graduate training in occupational safety and health for individuals with engineering backgrounds. Major accomplishments during the period of the grant included growth in faculty numbers and breadth, improvement in curriculum development and more involvement of faculty in continuing education activities. During this time period 23 students completed their MS degree in Industrial Engineering with a specialty in occupational safety and health. Two new faculty members were added in the areas of ergonomics and safety, increasing staff knowledge in cognitive engineering as well as repetitive trauma and musculoskeletal injury and prevention. A second safety course was added to the curriculum and a research seminar was instituted as well with the aim of sharpening students' skills in identifying and discussing pertinent research topics. The program faculty has also expanded their continuing education activities.
