Colden will sponsor the Northeast Biological Safety Association (NBSA) 10th Annual Biosafety Symposium at the University at Albany SUNY on March 21st, 2019. The full-day meeting will highlight biosafety professionals from government, academia, and industry discussing today’s pressing biosafety issues.
Electricity is a crucial component in commercial and industrial environments because many business processes rely on electric-powered equipment. The prevalence of electrical equipment in the workplace can become an occupational hazard without proper electrical safety engineering controls, safety awareness and precautionary practices in place.
Colden’s Senior Consultant, Catherine Bobenhausen, MS, CIH, CSP, FAIHA, LEED AP BD+C, has been invited to serve on the Advisory Committee of the Healthy Affordable Materials Project (HAMP), a national initiative funded by The JPB Foundation with the objective of improving human and environmental health through reduced exposures to chemical hazards in the affordable housing built environment.
The shape of the modern workplace has changed—today’s office can be anywhere from one’s home, in a coffee shop, or at a client’s site. Despite these challenges, developing a positive working environment can be achieved through communicating the value of ergonomics, and increasing awareness of the existing and potential work-related injuries to employees.
During a recent Transparency & Material Health in Practice panel discussion, Colden’s Catherine Bobenhausen shared a concept that is fundamental to the work of industrial hygiene, the hierarchy of controls. This triggered a conversation between Catherine and Wendy Vittori, Executive Director of the Health Product Declaration Collaborative.
