Training Agenda for Safety and Health for Hazardous Waste Site Personnel

This extract from a 1985 training manual offers the agenda for a three-day training course on 'Safety and Health for Hazardous Waste Site Personnel' at Hunter College's School of Health Science. The focus on hazardous waste would become an important component of the college's Center for Occupational and Environmental Health, which would begin to take form in the late 1980s under the direction of Dr. David Kotelchuck, a frequent presenter during this course.

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.
