"Federal Government Awards 11 Grants for Worker Training and Education Projects"

This article from the Occupational Health & Safety Reporter announces a number of grants awarded by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences in 1987. Included among these was one grant for a consortium based out of Rutgers that focused on hazardous waste worker training and education. The New York affiliate of this group was a nascent collective out of Hunter College that would shortly become the college's Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (COEH).

Officially founded in 1990, the COEH spent decades dedicating itself to promoting community and workplace health throughout the New York area. It offered courses on topics ranging from asthma to ergonomics for unions, neighborhood groups, public employees, and others.
