Topics and Tracks

Breakout sessions will include topics covering a wide range of occupational safety, health, and environmental subjects plus updates on regulatory matters. The conference program will blend new and traditional topics based on requests from past participants. Dynamic speakers will provide timely information you can apply directly to your workplace for improving your safety and health programs.

Specialty Tracks

  • Emerging Professionals – What do you wish someone had told you when you began your ESOH career? We encourage you to submit presentations providing tools and resources for attendees who are in the earlier stages of the ESOH profession.
  • Innovation, Research and Development – Whether it’s contribution to the academic literature, or an R&D practice in the field, presentations on research and development are welcome and will help keep professionals up-to-date with regard to the newest practices and insight in the profession.
  • Climate Change Hazards and Risks – Anticipate the potential risks and the occupational health and safety hazards associated with climate change.  A framework is broken into seven broad categories including an increase in ambient temperature – heat stress; air pollution (ground-level ozone and pulmonary toxicants) – respiratory and cardiovascular disease; ultraviolet radiation – skin cancer, eye effects, immune dysfunction; extreme weather – traumatic injuries, acute death, mental stress; vector-borne disease and other biological hazards – infectious disease, dermatitis, allergies/asthma; industrial transitions, and emerging industries – new chemical hazards, musculoskeletal disorders, mental stress from job insecurity;
  • Total Worker Health (TWH) Exposure – Human health effects are being recognized as the result of a complex interaction of factors including exposure to chemical, biological, and physical agents whether at work or at home, socioeconomic stressors, personal behaviors, and individual genetics. Health and safety science professionals can bring their expertise in anticipation, recognition, evaluation, control, and confirmation of exposures to chemical, biological, and physical agents in the workplace, home, and community.
  • Serving the Changing Workforce –People are increasingly engaging in nontraditional work arrangements such as gig work, contract work, telecommuting, and working for multiple employers. In addition, the workforce is aging, raising issues around health, chronic disease, and information processing. Coupled with global economic shifts and migration, these changes will significantly impact the evolution of occupational and environmental health concerns and how they are managed. This priority focuses on educating on the circumstances driving these changes, the implications they will have, and how the community can respond to protect human health in the workplace and community.
  • COVID-19 Pandemic Response – 2020 and 2021 have been unprecedented and forced workplaces to change and adapt in ways they never have before. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage you to submit presentations addressing how the ESOH profession has been impacted and will evolve, providing tools and resources for attendees to utilize in their daily work.
