Southwest Center for Occupational and Environmental Health

Your Best Response to a Changing World!

At the Southwest Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (SWCOEH) we extend our support to all workers, businesses and communities affected by the global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

During these times of uncertainty associated with the COVID-19, we want to provide you with an update regarding our process and Continuing Education training schedule for our professional development programs. In an effort to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19, and in accordance with the recommendations of UTHealth and the CDC, the Southwest Center of Occupational and Environmental Health (SWCOEH) is limiting in-person activities. We will continue to monitor the extent in which the virus has on our communities, and work to reschedule live events or move some events online.

In the meantime, SWCOEH will offer as many online events as possible using the virtual Webex platform.  We look forward to supporting your professional development needs as we navigate this together. As we go forward, we will be sure to keep you updated and connected to occupational safety and health resources and subject matter experts, and know that we always value your questions, ideas and feedback.
