Early Program Details
Ergonomics by the Letter
Lance Perry
In his 34-year career, Mr. Perry has seen time and time again that how a company involves its employees, treats them, designs for them and chooses to maximize each individual’s potential will determine a company's total success. Come learn how to better serve your fellow employees and open their eyes to the importance of ergonomics to advance your organization's overall success.

A New Look at the Way We Work:
Strategies From NIOSH Total Worker Health®
Dr. L. Case Chosewood
The concept of work is being redefined faster than most workers can keep up. And new work-associated threats to safety and well-being are following quickly behind — requiring organizations to invent novel strategies to better protect and promote the safety, health and well-being of their workers. Dr. Chosewood will examine the new way we work, unpack what we know about the tight link between work and health, and spur new dialogue on the future steps we must take to optimize work for today’s workforce and for the generations that follow.

Human Factors in Complex and Dynamic Systems —
Lessons From Investigating Catastrophic Events
 Cheryl Mackenzie
Using as examples several major incidents in various high-hazard work environments — such as a refinery, a university laboratory, an offshore drilling rig and a gas plant — you'll learn broad safety lessons that expand beyond the confines of the chemical industry. Plus, Ms. MacKenzie will share what the U.S. Chemical Safety Board has discovered about the role of human factors in accident causation.
