2019 NAOSH Committee: Althought it seems far away right now, planning for 2019's NAOSH Education Day is starting already. What topics should we be considering (our focus is on issues that may not be well represented or that are new and that apply to all areas of OHS)? What should our focus workshop look at? If you have some thoughts around this, like to design handouts, or just are happy to help on the day off, please let April know at [email protected]
Hope to see you at our next event or hear from you soon!
