Training for Protection

This winter, industrial hygiene students in the school’s Environmental Health Science’s program completed the 40-hour HAZWOPER—Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response—training program. They were hosted at the Michigan State Police’s Emergency Management and Homeland Security Training Center in Lansing and were participating to improve their skills protecting workers at hazardous sites. Photos by Peter Smith.
