Career opportunities in industrial hygiene, and the inseparable field of safety are diverse and many.

Some find employment in health care settings, including hospitals, laboratories, or universities. Still more options exist for you in the field of education or with public utilities, natural resource departments, consulting firms, and hazardous waste companies. OU graduates typically begin their IH careers as technical specialists at one of a diverse group of employers.
