JOHNS HOPKINS EDUCATION AND RESEARCH CENTER (ERC)
FOR OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH
The Johns Hopkins Education and Research Center (ERC) for Occupational Safety and Health provides an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to training researchers and practitioners in the field of occupational safety and health with the ultimate goal of protecting the safety and health of all workers.
This center is sponsored by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and includes five academic programs in the areas of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene, Occupational and Environmental Health Nursing, Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Occupational Epidemiology and Biomarkers, and Occupational Injury Epidemiology and Prevention. In addition, our Pilot Project Research Training Program supports students and junior faculty at research institutions within our region, while our Continuing Education and Outreach components bring the strengths of the core ERC programs to practicing occupational safety and health professionals throughout our region and beyond.
The Johns Hopkins ERC is committed to and centered on creating a culture which supports Inclusion, Diversity, Anti-Racism, and Equity (IDARE) values and principles.
