New COVID-19 conversations with occupational health and safety professionals

We know that you do not need more Zoom-like webinars to add to your schedule. What we suspect, though, is that you might like to learn what other occupational safety and health professionals and leaders are doing to protect workers and reduce workplace exposure risks in this quickly changing pandemic. Join us next week for this new, informal virtual conversation.

COVID-19, a fast moving pandemic – How do you catch up – or keep from getting run over?

Spend your coffee break eavesdropping on a conversation with a real-time Occupational Health and Safety Practitioner who is dealing with the impact of COVID-19 on their role and their work relationships. How has their role changed? What are the challenges they face right now? How are they bringing value to their employer and the workforce they serve? What might be coming in the near future? Get some new ideas, new thoughts, insights, and perspectives of how others are working through COVID-19.

Sponsored by the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences and the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center, this pilot session will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 9 from 9 AM – 9:30 AM. This conversation will be facilitated by Kate Wood, board member Oregon State Association of Occupational Health Nurses with Joel A. Michels, Nurse Practitioner,
Occupational Health and Well-being Program Manager, City of Portland. Subsequent sessions will be scheduled once or twice a month on the second and/or fourth Tuesday mornings with different guests, depending on demand.

We encourage you to hop on, turn off your video and stay muted, but use the chat feature to connect with other safety and health professionals, industrial hygienists and occupational health nurses who are facing some of the same challenges as you. We are all in this together!
