A five year performance report for the Educational Resource Center (ERC) at the University of California, Berkeley, was presented. During the period there were not many changes in the leadership, but significant advancements in programs. The Industrial Hygiene Program at Berkeley was revamped with the establishment of the research activities and related doctoral degree programs in the Nursing Program at San Francisco, the continuing development of clinical programs associated with the medical residency program as impacted by managed care, the end of support of the Occupational Medicine Program at Davis, the institution of an Ergonomics Program as a funded part of the ERC, the Continuing Education Program expansion to include not only more courses but to include also significantly increased numbers of students, and a step toward increased stability of the leadership of the ERC itself. Publications were produced during the period in the areas of workplace air monitoring, epidemiological studies concerning spontaneous abortion associated with work in the semiconductor fabrication rooms, the Labor Occupational Health Program, the completion of new facilities for the Ergonomics Program, a profile of an industrial hygiene alumnus, a demonstration project on ergonomic interventions in the California wine industry and a project detailing mechanical engineering in relating to occupational health problems in health care settings.
