Recorded at AIHce EXP 2019
This session is a walk down memory lane to the era of Rosie the Riveter and the impact of women joining the workforce of America during World War II. These pioneering women set forth the wheels of change that transformed how industry viewed workplace health and safety. The parallels of this social change are compared to today's diverse workplace and how American industry continues to adapt to the continually changing face of workers. The challenges of this change are discussed in the context of the trends that OH&S professionals adapt to throughout their careers, including cross-generational conflicts, multi-cultural workers, and unregulated chemical and physical agents.
