Training grant support in occupational safety and health.
NIOSH 1999 Dec; :1-15
The Occupational Safety and Health (Ergonomic emphasis) at Texas Tech University has benefited greatly from the NIOSH training grant support over the past 18 years. Seventy one 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. Jeffrey Woldstad left the program; however, we have already recruited one faculty member in the area of human factors, ergonomics, and biomechanics and are seeking one additional faculty member in the area of ergonomics with expertise in cognitive ergonomics. 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.
