Clemson University, Clemson, North Carolina, 1981 Jan; :1-22
An undergraduate training program with a major in occupational safety and health, developed at Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina, under NIOSH sponsorship is described. Objectives of the program were to allow students to gain a B.S. in Administrative Management with a major in Occupational Safety and Health Management, to offer new courses on a regular basis, and encourage students to enroll in the program. The curriculum requires 132 semester hours of study, including 18 hours in the field of occupational safety and health. The seven courses which were developed with NIOSH funds are: 1) Introduction to Occupational Safety and Health; 2) Industrial Accident Prevention I; 3) Industrial Accident Prevention II; 4) Industrial Health Management; 5) Fire Production and Prevention; 6) Industrial Safety Management; and 7) Safety in Building Construction. It is noted that there has been an increase in the numbers of students taking occupational safety and health courses, and an increase in the numbers of majors in the field. It is argued that the program has been a success in terms of curriculum, courses developed, student participation, and acceptance of graduates by industry. An appendix includes descriptions of the original and revised curricula, and figures on student enrollment.
