The average workplace is composed of workers from many different cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. While legal norms exist to prevent discrimination in the workplace, in real life employers may not understand their obligations to protect the health and safety of workers, nor have the expertise to do so.
This webinar explores these issues in the context of OEH Scientists’ professional ability to understand complex changes in the workforce due to global economic shifts, migration, racism, discrimination against women, and other historic injustices. The presenters will unravel these complex national and international issues and provide suggestions for the OEHS profession and its allies to enhance the health safety of workers.
This webinar is organized by the Officers of the International Affairs Committee with the assistance of AIHA member Jonathan Rosen.
