38th Annual Scientific Meeting: Song of the Canary - Protecting Health and Safety of Vulnerable Employees (and everyone else) Song of the Canary: Just as workers are the first to experience the effects of industrial chemicals which will also threaten the community at large, so vulnerable worker populations are the first to experience effects of working conditions which will threaten the full workforce. We focus on health effects in industries with many immigrant workers, social conditions which intensify these on vulnerable populations, and the means of abatement.
This activity is designed for occupational and environmental medicine, occupational safety and health, industrial hygiene, occupational health healthcare practitioners and researchers involved in workplace safety and health.
PRESENTATIONS INCLUDE: NIOSH Perspective: Protecting Health and Safety of Vulnerable Employees (Thomas Cunningham, PhD, CDC/NIOSH); Occupational Safety and Health Issues of Low-wage and Immigrant Workers (with Isabel Cuervo, PhD, Arturo Archila and Diana Mejia); Occupational Safety and Health of Tourism Workers (Pamela Vossenas, DrPHc, MPH); Airport Workers (Mark Catlin, BS, BA); Community-University collaborative approach to occupational health of low income workers in New York City (George Friedman-Jimenez, MD, DrPh); Protecting the Safety & Health of Vulnerable Workers (Steven J. Kaplan, BS); Occupational Safety and Health Issues for Nail Salon Workers (Carol Berman, MS, IH); and the ERC Trainee and Pilot Project Poster Session.
