GISH 2020 Online: Climate Change and Worker Health, Worker Well-being, COVID-19 …

The Washington State Governor’s Industrial Safety and Health (GISH) conference is going virtual this year September 21 – 25 with an agenda packed with information and trainings for workforce safety, health, and well-being amid the current challenges. Optional pre-conference training classes include a full-day session on Climate Change and Worker Health, led by University of Washington and a Telecommunications training for Washington’s new safety standard.

Worker well-being has never been more relevant as we face multiple crises this year, so the 69th annual GISH kicks off with a keynote address on Burnout and Resiliency from Jessica Rector, MBA, followed by classes throughout the week spanning mental health, communication, and leadership.

Occupational Safety and Health efforts during the pandemic have already yielded many lessons learned and updated guidance. Many of the classes at GISH this year are led by leaders in the field. Be sure to watch for our partners at the University of Washington Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences, who will share their expertise and resources on this topic.

It’s not too late to register for GISH! Registration includes virtual sessions through the week and for 30 days after the Conference.
