NIOSH Webinar to Present an "Expanded Focus" on OHS

On Sept. 18, NIOSH will host a free webinar on topics related to an “expanded focus” on occupational safety and health as part of its 2019 Expanding Research Partnerships Webinar Series. The series is intended to increase awareness of the topic areas being addressed by NIOSH-funded research and knowledge of areas where new research partnerships can be developed. The upcoming webinar will address emerging issues in the field of occupational safety and health.

Scheduled presenters include Paul A. Schulte, PhD, NIOSH’s director of the Division of Science Integration, and George Delclos, MD, MPH, PhD, of the University of Texas Health Science Center School of Public Health. According to NIOSH, Schulte has developed frameworks to address areas such as the aging workforce, the burden of occupational disease and injury, well-being of the workforce, and translation research and synthetic biology and occupational risk. Delclos’ current areas of research include occupational and environmental asthma; national surveys of working conditions, employment, and health; and determinants of sickness absence, presenteeism, and disability.
