Abstract In the 21st century, concerns for the health and safety of the workers, as well as for the preservation of our natural environment, have never been greater. Progressive organizations have demonstrated that while strong environmental health and safety programs require a commitment of considerable dollars, in the long run this commitment saves money, maximizes profits, prevents injuries, saves lives, and preserves our natural resources. Therefore, the demand for qualified environmental health and safety personnel should continue to grow. The University of Minnesota Duluth, Master of Environmental Health and Safety program has a time-honored reputation for preparing highly qualified graduates for these most rewarding fields of endeavor. In response to this growing demand, the Master of Environmental Health and Safety (MEHS) program strives to prepare graduates for professional careers in environmental health and safety which include, but are not limited to, occupational safety and health and other related general fields. The coursework includes analysis of occupational safety and health problems, accompanying problem-solving and decision-making techniques, and the application of established principles of accident prevention, control, and reduction in occupational settings. Since its foundation in 1975, the program has had about 650 graduates with approximately 100 percent placement within the professional fields identified. The overall program purpose is to continue to satisfy the ongoing demand for academically trained and competent occupational health and safety practitioners, by training highly qualified and skilled graduates capable of assuming the day-to-day responsibilities of safety professionals.
