Findlay’s Environmental, Health, Safety & Sustainability Program Receives Reaccreditation
The Environmental, Health, Safety & Sustainability (EHSS) Program at the University of Findlay has been reaccredited to the year 2022. The program is accredited by the National Environmental Health Science and Protection Accreditation Council (EHAC), and is a Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) Qualified Academic Program.
EHAC accredited environmental health degrees are deemed the industry standard by environmental health leaders. According to the National Environmental Health Science & Protection Accreditation Council, students who graduate from EHAC accredited programs are, “equipped with the skills and competencies to assess and address a myriad of environmental health issues as EHAC curriculum provides strong foundations,” in areas such as toxicology, water and food safety, epidemiology, vector control, and microbiology.
Jeffrey Frye, Ph.D., dean of the college of sciences, explained, “Accreditation for an academic program indicates that graduates from said program have met specific knowledge and skills outcomes. Employers and industry professionals can expect an existing knowledge base from a graduate.”
University of Findlay’s EHSS Program offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees and has a 100% post-graduation job placement rate to date. Fields of focus for the program include Emergency Management, Environmental Compliance, Safety & Occupational Health. A unique aspect of Findlay’s programs is the added benefit of having access to the nationally renowned All Hazards Training Center which provides hands-on experience with real-life training props such as railcars, storage tanks and piping, hazardous materials and fire simulators, as well as access to state-of-the-art labs.
