The Future of Occupational Health: Policy, Research, and Practice

The Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences at University of Washington is embarking on a project to define what the Future of Occupational Health may look like from research, training, and policy/management perspectives. This discussion will provide an overview of this project that consists of two components: an invited speaker series, and a cumulative symposium, to be held June 25-25, 2015 in Seattle.

Emerging Technologies and “Green” Production

Innovation and discovery are important drivers of economic activity. However, the impact of new products and production methods also affect the workforce.  New materials such as engineered nanomaterials and materials developed for their positive environmental (green) qualities may be put into production and products without adequate knowledge of health impacts. This discussion will focus on how can we anticipate and control health impacts on the workforce involved in such systems.


LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED
