Student Comments

“Retiring from the Navy and moving to aerospace was a significant transition. I had a strong safety background from my military experience, but the aerospace companies’ management wanted me to obtain a better understanding of Environmental Management. Since taking classes at Cuyamaca I have a broader understanding of Environmental Management and Occupational Safety as they relate to each other. This understanding of the Environmental Health and Occupational Safety as symbiotic fields has made me a better EH&S Manager and the Cuyamaca College EHSM Department were instrumental in that effort.”

Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) is a constantly expanding and evolving field with oversight from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA/CalOSHA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT). These agencies provide regulations and program requirements that are ever-expanding and evolving.

Cuyamaca College’s EHSM department maintains current, state-of-the-art EHSM technologies, as well as incorporating new and updated regulatory requirements. These program guidelines are implemented into the curriculum and supported by the environmental health and safety industry in San Diego.
