    The Outskirts of Health & Safety Engagement

    The nature of work and health has evolved significantly over the last 20 years.  As both employment type and employee expectations have changed, so has our thinking around how to best engage all workers.  Cultural dynamics, job type, geographic location, access to technology and infrastructure all contribute to our new engagement strategies.  This training will focus on how we gather meaningful information on fringe and non-traditional workers that help drive increased engagement in health and safety. 


    We are pleased to welcome Joshua Scott, MS
