The University of Findlay will be dedicating a renovated lab, to be used by those in the Environmental, Safety and Occupational Health Management program, at 3:30 p.m. Friday in Brewer Science Hall, Room B118.
The BP-Husky Industrial Hygiene Ventilation Lab renovation and equipment purchasing was made possible by BP’s $20,000 donation.
Speaking at the event will be Tim Murphy, Ph.D., associate professor and chairman of the University’s Environmental Safety and Health Management program; President Katherine Fell, Ph.D.; Tom Brungard from the BP-Husky Refinery; and students Emily Stewart, Schau Don Herd and Heather Farrar.
Tours of the University’s All Hazards Training Center, 5000 Fostoria Road, will also be provided on Friday prior to the open house by calling Diane Rowland at (419) 434-4517 in advance.
BP has donated generously to The University of Findlay in the past, primarily for scholarships. In 2011, its funding enabled the retrofitting of two University-owned houses on West Foulke Avenue with renewable energy and monitoring equipment.
This corporate/higher education partnership has also forged career paths for more than a dozen UF alumni who now work in the environmental, safety and industrial hygiene departments at BP’s Toledo refinery.
