“It’s time for us to get ahead of the issues with new, innovative thinking,” says Don Elswick, CIH, CSP, CHMM, CIT. Elswick is Executive Director of the University of Alabama (UA) SafeState and Chair of the Board of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH).
Elswick will address research and trends that provide a pathway to success in his session, The Future of Environmental, Safety, and Occupational Health (ESOH), at BCSP’s Global Learning Summit (GLS).
The environmental, safety, and occupational health (ESOH) field must expand its focus to include existing and new hazards, consider how to protect the health and well-being of a diverse workforce, and understand and mitigate the safety implications of new work arrangements.
“Rapid and profound changes anticipated in the future of work will have significant implications for occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals as the nature of the workplace, work, and the workforce change, requiring ESOH professionals to be lifelong learners,” explains Elswick. These changes bring both challenges and opportunities for the development of emerging professionals and those interested in careers in OSH.
“The GLS is the best $25 investment you will make in your career,” he adds. “The three days of ideas will support growth and idea generation including enhancements in human, organizational, equipment/technology causal factors, and the virtual platform creates an opportunity to learn from world-renowned experts.”
The Future of Environmental, Safety, and Occupational Health (ESOH) will be presented on Wednesday, May 11, at 11 a.m. (Eastern Time). The complete agenda and registration for the BCSP GLS can be found at BCSPGLS.COM.
