COEH responds to emerging environmental and occupational needs in California.
Every day, Californians face occupational and environmental exposures from manufacturing, agriculture, gas and oil extraction, biotechnology and microelectronics; from work organization and telecommuting with home office arrangements and large-scale health care sector transitions. Environmental factors include: heat stress, water shortages, agrochemical contamination, air pollution, wildfires, and geological risks.
Additionally, the Californian labor force is supplied by migrant labor and California has an increasingly diverse labor force with large subsets of at-risk employees. The environments in which Californians live and work continue to create new demands for specialized training for occupational and environmental health professionals.
