A degree in Occupational Health and Safety helps prepare students for working in the industrial and manufacturing industry. In this setting, graduates oversee and administer health and safety procedures relating to the industrial work environment. Areas of responsibility include hazardous materials management, compliance with OSHA requirements and facilitation of worker safety guidelines, interaction with Human Resources on employee management health and safety issues and laws, and in some cases implementation and administration of company health promotion programs.
