Environmental and Occupational Health

In the United States and globally, countless people live and work in environments that contain hazards that can make them sick or injured. That’s where you can help improve the health and well-being of workers and communities.

Environmental and occupational health professionals identify and measure hazards, study potential adverse health effects and discover new ways to control hazards.

Environmental and occupational health research

Our interdisciplinary, community-engaged research includes exposures to heavy metals, air pollutants, climate, whole-body vibration and physical hazards, as well as health outcomes related to cardiovascular health, musculoskeletal health, respiratory health, cumulative trauma and traumatic injuries.

NIOSH affiliated program

The College of Health has a formal partnership with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s Center for Maritime Safety and Health Studies to work together to improve safety and health conditions in maritime workplaces in the United States.
