Abstract
The Occupational Safety and Health (Ergonomic emphasis) at Texas Tech University has benefited greatly from the NIOSH training grant support over the past 23 years. Seventy nine master's students have graduated throughout that time period. During the last five years, there has been an average of three M.S. student's graduate per year. There have been a few changes in the departmental faculty over the years. During the past year, Dr. Jeff Woldstad returned to Texas Tech University. Dr. Woldstad served as Project Director for a Training Grant program at Oregon State University and had served in the same position here at Texas Tech before leaving in 1999. Acquisition and update of laboratory equipment continues as needed. Although grant monies have not been used for such equipment, the update of laboratory equipment benefits all students in the program. Placement of our graduates remains at 100%. The program at Texas Tech continues to be strong and therefore graduates are highly sought after.
