Your Best Response to a Changing World!

During these times of uncertainty associated with the COVID-19 emergency, 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 the CDC and UTHealth, the Southwest Center of Occupational and Environmental Health (SWCOEH) is cancelling all in-person activities through May 2020. We will continue to monitor the extent in which the virus has on our communities, and work to reschedule live events or move some online. 

In the meantime, SWCOEH will offer as many online events as possible using the WebEx platform and other resources. More information will be announced in the coming weeks. We look forward to supporting your professional development needs as we navigate this together.

Please refer to guidance from CDCOSHA and public health state and local officiants in your community for up to date information. As a health and safety community, we will continue to honor human dignity, support our loved ones, and provide the best knowledge we have to offer.


The mission of the Southwest Center for Occupational and Environmental Health (SWCOEH) Continuing Education (CE) Program is to serve as a training resource for professionals and decision-makers in the occupational and environmental health fields by delivering specialized courses in response to current training needs.


Our goal is to improve occupational and environmental health, and worker well-being.
