Not your Father’s Workplace – New Challenges in Occupational and Environmental Safety & Health
      Climate Change
Global warming is having a profound impact on our world.  The resulting changes of climate can significantly affect occupational health and safety – exacerbating the effects of heat and cold-related occupational illnesses, respiratory exposure, exposure to indoor and outdoor pollutants, exposure to ultraviolent rays for outdoor workers, and more.  Courses on the impact of climate change on workers will be in development soon.
      Green Chemistry
Green, or sustainable, chemistry is a rapidly expanding field that seeks to reduce the generation of hazardous substances by using more environmentally benign materials and processes.  Green chemistry has its own occupational and environmental health challenges. 
Nanotechnology relates to matter so small it approaches molecular scale.  With more industries finding uses for nanotechnology, it is critical that the health effects of these tiny particles on workers who create or work with nanoparticles be recognized, measured, evaluated and controlled.  UCLA is a Center of Excellence for Nanotechnology. 
Ergonomics is fitting the task to the person, adjusting how a job is done to prevent musculoskeletal and other injuries.  Injuries due to Ergonomic Stress are more costly than all other injury causes combined!  We offer a variety of ergonomics courses including an Advanced monthly online webinars, short courses and symposia.
Geopolitical conflicts impact everyone.  All worksites are vulnerable to natural and biological disasters. Some worksites are more vulnerable as targets because of their nature or location. 

Save lives, limbs, jobs and resources.
