"Critical Challenges Facing Occupational Health and
Safety - Today and Tomorrow"
The field of occupational health and safety is changing rapidly. Globalization, technology and demographics are affecting the world of work in many different ways. Dr. Howard will review the changing employment patterns that challenge existing models of worker protection, emerging technologies that provide new ways to monitor safety and health risks, and the rise of worker well-being as an occupational safety and health value.
