Colden will exhibit at the 2018 Northeast Regional Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exhibition on December 7th, 2018 from 7:15 am – 4:45 pm. The conference and exhibition will be held at the Westin Forrestal Village, 201 Village Road in Princeton, NJ.
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.
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.
