Oregon FACE Hires Experienced Safety and Health Professional

Dr. Ryan Olson, Oregon FACE Principal Investigator, and Illa Gilbert-Jones await the tram.


We’d like to introduce Illa Gilbert-Jones, the newest team member at Oregon FACE!  Illa is a Certified Safety Professional and Certified Industrial Hygienist with over 25 years of experience working in a variety of industries.  She has most recently spent 7 years as a senior safety consultant for SAIF Corporation (Oregon’s largest workers compensation insurance company).

We’re very excited about the many talents Illa will bring to the OR-FACE program, but are especially pleased with what she will bring to FACE fatality investigations (both independent and in collaboration with OR-OSHA) and to outreach efforts in Oregon’s highest risk industries.

Illa is an active member of the Columbia-Willamette Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) and the Pacific Northwest Section of the American Industrial Hygiene Association.

The Oregon Occupational Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (OR-FACE) Program is a National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) sponsored program designed to prevent occupational fatalities through surveillance, targeted investigation, assessment, and outreach associated with traumatic work-related deaths in Oregon.
