November 10th – 13th, 2019
Colden will attend the 2019 SEHSA Fall Conference on November 10th – 13th, held at the Saratoga Hilton in Saratoga, NY. The SEHSA Environmental Health and Safety Association of NY, Inc. is an organization of professionals dedicated to promoting a culture of safety on campuses throughout New York State.
OSHA recently unveiled a toolkit for employers and workers, “Transitioning to Safer Chemicals” to engage industry in accelerated research into the viability and substitution of safer chemicals. Elimination or substitution of the most hazardous chemicals aligns with industrial hygiene’s hierarchy of controls and holds the promise of eliminating exposures, reducing accidents, and saving permitting, control equipment, treatment and disposal costs.
The Boston regional office for Colden recently received approval from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Fire Services (DFS) to provide state-mandated Hot Works training seminars. Colden’s highly experienced, certified, and qualified consulting staff looks forward to providing this training to its clients in the Commonwealth and those who are not based in Massachusetts, but who have facilities and operations that must comply with the standard.
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.
