From sustainability to risk assessment to residential fall protection, Safety 2013 sessions will cover a wide range of EHS-related topics. To give you a scheduling heads’ up, here’s a sampling of notable breakout sessions you may want to attend:
Dr. L. Casey Chooswood, MD’s presentation at the Wednesday morning kick off session was an introduction to one of NIOSH’s prized projects, in line with NIOSH boss Dr. John Howard’s vision for the future, namely Total Worker Health™. What is it?
Monday afternoon AIHA Director of Government Affair Aaron Trippler gave an informal assessment of the political side of occupational safety and health, circa 2013. The reason nothing is getting done in DC is both parties have lost control of their members, said Trippler.
Here is a meeting idea for you to maybe try out. “The UnSession” will be present for two hours this morning at the AIHce in Montreal. UnSessions started in the high-tech industry. They are not for those who like a more passive learning experience with a traditional lecture approach.
Good morning from cloudy and cool Montreal, site of the 2014 AIHce. The confab got underway yesterday (Monday) morning bright and early at 8 am. The opening session was pretty much SRO. In the darkened hall I couldn’t help but notice I was surrounded by smartphone gazers.
Consultants Tom Rancour and Bradford Russell offered these takeaways in a session yesterday afternoon: Some companies implement and dedicate time to management systems, but the guiding principle, the safety and health policy, is buried in some labor manual.
AIHA and ACGIH do much to recognize and encourage the careers of young professionals. But when it comes to traveling to conventions, seniority often rules and so it was yesterday I heard several Baby Boomer EHS pros gabbing on the exhibit floor.
5,000+ professionals from the occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) world convene in Montreal starting today (Monday, May 20) for 74th annual American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition (AIHce). The conference and trade show takes place at the Montreal Convention Center until Thursday, May 23.
At Safety 2013, June 24-27 in Las Vegas, hundreds of companies will showcase the latest in EHS-related products and services in the spacious Las Vegas Convention Center. Whether you’re interested in hearing, hand or fall protection, hazcom training or gas detectors or anything else related to workplace safety, you’ll find manufacturers and distributors that will be able to explain and demonstrate items you may need.
One barometer is to look at the recently formed working groups that will be holding meetings in Montreal: Nanotechnologyworking group; Incident preparation and responseworking group; Oil and gasworking group; Control bandingworking group; Clandestine laboratoryworking group; Green buildingworking group.
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.
