Abstract The Johns Hopkins Education and Research Center (ERC) was established in 1977 in response to the need for interdisciplinary training programs that would help meet the need for a professional workforce dedicated to worker safety and health. Since that time, the center has prepared leaders in occupational safety and health research and practice in the following disciplines. Master's and doctoral training is provided in Occupational and Environmental Hygiene (MHS, PhD, DrPH, ScD), Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing (MPH, MSN/MPH, PhD, DrPH), Biomarkers of Occupational Exposure and Susceptibility research training (PhD, DrPH), Occupational Injury Prevention (PhD) and residency training in Occupational and Environmental Medicine. Continuing Education and Outreach components (including Hazardous Substance Training) bring the strengths of the core programs to practicing occupational safety and health professionals in Region III and beyond. Annual trainees per program have averaged 10 in Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing, six to eight in Occupational and Environmental Medicine, 20 in Occupational and Environmental Hygiene, eight to 10 in Biomarkers research, and five to six in Occupational Injury Prevention. The Continuing Education program reaches working occupational safety and health professionals, totaling 5,402 in a total of 236 courses over this five-year period.
