The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) and the HCMS Group have announced an important expansion to their “Blueprint for Health” — a free internet-based calculating tool that helps employers better comprehend and analyze the impact of medical costs, absence, and work impairment among their employees.
Citing the negative impact it could have on occupational safety and health, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) said it strongly opposes action by the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) that could harm the future development of timely and effective voluntary national consensus safety and health standards.
New research from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) raises awareness of the occupational safety and health practices necessary during the synthesis, characterization and experimentation using engineered nanomaterials in a laboratory setting.
Although the Total Worker Health™ (TWH) only has one candle on its birthday cake, proud parent NIOSH says it has already accomplished many things, and has a bright future ahead of it.
The American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA) has developed a mobile application (app) that allows professional industrial hygienists to use common formulas and conversions on their mobile device and calculate the results in a timely and efficient manner.
Are you a hearing conservation hero? Have you instituted a program in your workplace to help employees avoid hearing loss (or do you know someone who has?)
The National Hearing Conservation Association annual conference is an extremely popular and well-attended event, and is often reported my members as the most valuable feature of NHCA membership. The conference provides an opportunity to learn about the latest research and tools for hearing conservation, to network with peers, and to re-establish ties with old friends and colleagues.
