The UA Zuckerman College of Public Health is home for several Centers and the Center for Rural Health, whose members engage in public health research, service and teaching:
The University of Arizona created the Western Mining Safety and Health Resource Training Center under the NIOSH Western Training Grant to support the occupational health needs of the mining community. This interdisciplinary collaborative program spans the Departments of Mining and Geological Engineering; Teaching, Learning, and SocioCultural Studies in the College of Education; and Community, Environment and Policy in the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health.
The Training Resource Center provides timely and relevant mining community-specific information, resources, and methods that increases the capacity and efficacy of exposure measurement, safety training, and leadership for miners. The Training Resource Center offers (1) a full range of MSHA safety courses on a regular schedule; (2) courses on adult and English language learner education for trainers, (3) mining leadership; (4) industrial hygiene and occupational health support; and (4) technology integration (e.g., interactive fatalgrams for use in safety training).
