The Short Conference: Simplifying Industrial Hygiene: Breaking Down the Silos

VelocityEHS' Director of Industrial Hygiene Dave Risi presented the session, “Simplifying Industrial Hygiene: Breaking Down the Silos” at The Short Conference on May 21st. During the session, he emphasized that Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) professionals are being asked to do more with less. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they've had to do more of their own research and acquire new skills to complete tasks outside their original silos. This trend started before the pandemic and will continue to increase. Managing an industrial hygiene program is one of the many responsibilities that these professionals are finding on their already full plates.

During the session, Risi provided tips on managing an effective IH program, and delivered useful information about relating industrial hygiene metrics to familiar risk management processes. He also addressed the most common challenges professionals are facing today and answered many questions on industrial hygiene best practices.
