Does Your Occupational Health Program Need a Shot in the Arm?

Tuesday, January 31, 2023
11:00 AM (New York) / 16:00 (London) / 17:00 (Paris)
Moderated by Cindy A. Buckmaster, PhD, CMAR, RLATG

NOTE - registration for this event will close at 5:00 PM (New York) / 22:00 (London) / 23:00 (Paris) on Monday, January 30.

Occupational Health and Safety Programs (OHSP) have historically presented a challenge for animal care and use programs across the spectrum of organizations. Successful OHSP do not just happen. They require strategic training and coordination from several stakeholders.

This interplay of industry professionals can produce its own set of obstacles and even frustrations. However, we surmise that historical OHSP were not designed to serve the 2023 workforce. Failure to recognize this discrepancy could present a new set of challenges.

It behooves traditional OHSP to be reassessed amongst organizations that strive to remain competitive and culturally relevant. Stakeholders in OHSP must reexamine their programs, ensuring a holistic structure that best serves their organization.

AALAS CEUs: This webinar is eligible for 1.00 Technician CEU credit or 1.00 CMAR CEU credit. A confirmation email will be sent to all attendees upon conclusion of the webinar.
