The Rocky Mountain Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (RMCOEH) was established to bring occupational and environmental health training and expert information to this region. Three major goals were established and given to the faculty of the facility. These were to reduce the incidence of work related disease and injuries; to enhance the health, safety and performance of the workers; and lastly to change environmental factors which had been linked to adverse health, safety or performance outcomes. This report discussed 5 years of the facility's history. Over that period of time, 121 graduate students have been enrolled in the programs at the center. Thirteen new academic and 29 new continuing education courses were developed during the grant years. Consultation was provided to industries and workers in the US and other countries. Research capabilities demonstrated a major jump forward with a 1500 square foot ergonomics research laboratory being established on site. During the last of the grant years, the faculty was increased to nine full time members and the support staff to ten full time individuals. RMCOEH program areas included agriculture, industrial hygiene, occupational medicine, occupational health nursing, ergonomics and safety, and continuing education and outreach with attention given to hazardous substances training.
