In addition to these programs, Eastern Kentucky University’s bachelor’s degree program in Fire Protection and Safety also recently earned accreditation. ABET accreditation is considered the gold standard in OSH education as it is proof that a collegiate program has met standards needed to produce graduates ready to enter the applied sciences and other STEM fields.

“ASSE applauds these programs for taking the next step in guaranteeing a competitive, rigorously evaluated program for their students,” says ASSE President Michael Belcher, CSP. “These students will graduate knowing they can be confident in the value of their education in the marketplace.”
