That's extremely interesting to me. 1976 was a different time and it has been my contention that safety played a more important role in the past than today. And I know a bit about the art department at Keene college and suggested a for credit art safety course for them when I inspected and wrote a report in 2008.
If I had known about your course and could have used your department as a model.
It seems so obvious that schools should require this kind of course for all programs in which toxic and regulated stuff is used.

I offered a 3-cr one out of the chemistry department from 1976=E2=80=942003, but I don=E2=80=99t believe it has been continued. It was required for the BS in Chem, and had an optional [1-cr] lab in IH.
There is now a department of Safety Studies that offers quite a few, but the catalog says those are open only to their majors.

Excuse the cross-posting:
Are there any institutions that offer a safety course (quarter- or semester-long) for academic credit? This would be outside of course work for a degree in health and safety. I know there are institutions that require lab safety training before students can begin work but I=E2=80=99m interested in an academic course, either required or elective.
