Hazardous Substances Academic Training (HSAT) is a subspecialty of the Industrial Hygiene program, offering the MS degree. A concentration in hazardous substances requires courses in hazardous materials management, occupational and environmental toxicology, environmental chemistry, and participation in the 40-hour General Site Worker (Hazwoper) course, in addition to the general Industrial Hygiene program requirements.
The goals of this program are to develop hazardous substances practitioners with as much practical experience as possible and to train hazardous substances specialists with research experience in occupational and environmental health. Similarl to the Industrial Hygiene program, all trainees participate in one extended field study and the Illinois ERC's interdisciplinary acivities.
The HSAT program is carried out within the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Division in the School of Public Health.
