Oversight on NIOSH: Educational Resource Centers. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Education and Labor. House of Representatives, Ninety-Ninth Congress, First Session, June 18, 1985.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
Educational Resource Centers (ERC), which are funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, are considered in these hearings. Attention is directed to how four centers are fulfilling their mission, special programs at the centers, and possible future projects. ERCs, which are located at 15 regional public and private universities in 14 states, are a main source of preparing qualified occupational health and safety professionals. In addition to providing tuition and stipend support to graduates students in occupational medicine/nursing, industrial hygiene, and safety sciences, the centers offer continuing education courses. At The John Hopkins University, the ERC is based on the School of Hygiene and Public Health. The ERC at the University of Utah involves a collaborative effort of three different schools: the School of Medicine, the College of Engineering, and the College of Nursing. Three special projects at the University of Michigan's ERC concern: hazardous waste, automobile production, and semiconductor manufacturing. The ERC at the University of California is comprised of four academic programs (occupational medicine, nursing, industrial hygiene, epidemiology and toxicology) and a service/outreach component that are located at the Berkeley, Davis, and San Francisco campuses.
