The online EHSM graduate certificate is a 15-hour program that focuses on preventing workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities and is perfect for those who currently work in or plan to work in a technical manager's role.

Designed to meet the educational and credentialing needs of staff managers who currently hold a Bachelor's degree and are in need of specialized health and safety training, the EHSM certificate can ease the transition from a practitioner's role to a technical manager's role. Most EHSM students are highly specialized in their particular discipline and are employed primarily in large business or governmental organizations, including but not limited to safety engineering, industrial hygiene, health physics, ergonomics,risk management for workers compensation insurance and hazardous materials control. This program will also benefit professionals who are not health and safety specialists but hold or are seeking a position of responsibility for the health and safety function in their organization. Upon completion of the graduate certificate, you should be able to:

  • Apply general management concepts and principles to EHSM functions
  • Demonstrate understanding of EHSM regulations and methods of compliance
  • Evaluate organizational culture as it relates to safety and health performance
  • Design and implement effective safety and health training
  • Demonstrate creative problem solving and effective conflict resolution skills
