Safety Science Certificate

Program Overview

College of Natural and Health Sciences

The certificate program in safety science prepares students for field site and laboratory work around any industrial hazardous materials on a wide variety of job sites (from extractive industries to food service industries).  Federal and state regulations require workers in many industries to be trained according to guidelines established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (e.g. hazardous waste operations and emergency response-HAZWOPER). The certificate provides both a theoretical background in science and practical training in environmental settings with appropriate personal and environmental protective equipment. Many employers look for such training in their workforce.
