COEH Builds Bridges: Four Decades of Progress in the California Workplace
For the last 40 years, faculty, researchers and students at Northern California’s Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH) have conducted vital research to help inform state policy, provided education and training to protect vulnerable workers, and have promoted health and safety in California’s workplaces. Progress has been made over the last 4 decades, but there continues to be a need for COEH’s research, training and education. Every year, thousands of California workers become injured or ill due to work. Preventable fatalities occur at work. In the years ahead, climate change, social disparities, and the changing world of work will present new challenges to health and safety professionals tasked with protecting public health.
