The demand for diversified education and training for safety professionals led to the establishment of Murray State University's Department of Occupational Safety and Health in 1978. The Department of Occupational Safety and Health at Murray State University provides a variety of curriculum options which include a bachelor of science in the area of occupational safety and health (safety and environmental options); master of science in occupational safety and health with specialties in safety management, industrial hygiene, and environmental; and a technical minor in occupational safety and health. Each degree provides a comprehensive broad-based educational background designed to prepare individuals for entry-level and advanced work in the field. The bachelor and master of science programs in occupational safety and health are accredited by RAC/ABET. Both the undergraduate and graduate programs in occupational safety and health were originally accredited by ASSE in 1988. These accreditations, along with the curriculum changes and support from the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, all served to increase the visibility of occupational safety and. health at Murray State University.
