Safety and Health Management (SHM) Program

Launched in 1974 as Occupational Safety and Health, our bachelor of science in Safety and Health Management was founded in anticipation of an upswing in demand for occupational safety and health (OS&H) professionals. Throughout names changes— to Loss Control Management and then Safety and Health Management—over the last 39 years, we have graduated more than 475 OS&H professionals. More than 80 percent of them now employed in Washington, Oregon, and California, where the majority work in construction, insurance, and manufacturing. Our program now enrolls more than 75 students annually and, each year, graduates 25 industry-ready professionals. In addition, there are three program minors available in construction safety, occupational safety technology, and safety and health management.
