From 1975 to 1978, this training program at North Carolina State University has involved the training of persons at the master's degree level for careers as safety specialists working in industry or with state and federal governmental agencies as pertains to the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. In addition to specific core courses in this curriculum, students were able to select from the following areas of interest: noise and vibration effects on workers, control of industrial noise, environmental toxicology, practices in industrial hygiene, and epidemiological investigations.
