University Park, College of Earth and Mineral Sciences

PROFESSOR CHRISTOPHER J. BISE, Undergraduate Program Officer

This program is designed to provide students with the technical and managerial skills necessary to address the occupational health and safety concerns associated with the extraction and utilization activities of the minerals and fuels industries, the construction industry, and other heavy industries. Employers in the United States are mandated by federal and state laws to provide workplaces that are free of recognized hazards to personnel. Agencies such as OSHA and MSHA have placed increased emphasis on employer responsibilities for the health and safety of their employees. Annually, work-related incidents cost the United States in excess of $40 billion, affecting not only workmen's compensation but also reducing productivity. This program includes a general background in the basic sciences, followed by a core program emphasizing the nature of the various industries, as well as the economic, technical, and policy issues of occupational health and safety.

For the B.S. degree in Industrial Health and Safety, a minimum of 129 credits is required.
