The future of safety

American Industrial Hygiene Association
Now, words such as “PPE” and “N95” are mentioned every day across mass media and are even becoming part of household vernacular. Even the Hierarchy of Controls, which underscores the practice of occupational health and safety, is being referenced regularly. As businesses reopen across America, greater attention must be placed on worker health (both in and outside the workplace). We feel that the need for occupational health and safety consultation has never been more critically needed; the value of our profession is being amplified as we navigate these challenging times.
