Topic:    Health & Safety Lessons from Other Public Health Professions:

              Techniques and discoveries we may be missing that could help us protect workers

Few practicing health & safety (H&S) professionals routinely identify themselves as part of the "public health workforce" but H&S is actually a subset of a very diverse professional community that collectively exists to prevent illness, injury, or death within populations. If H&S professionals would only pause to consider the techniques and discoveries derived from other public health fields, lessons could be gleaned that could help us better manage risks. This presentation is specifically intended to get H&S professionals "out of their box" by providing an overview of the broader field of public health from a historical perspective and then an examination of three examples from public health endeavors that hold potentially powerful lessons for the H&S profession. The presentation will also expose individuals to other possible career tracks within the broader field of public health. Ample time will be allotted for questions and discussion.

Each participant will Learn How to:

• Define "public health" and instill an understanding of its importance to the origins of the health & safety professions
• Discuss examples of advances in various public health disciplines that can assist the health & safety professions in achieving stated goals
• Instill an awareness of the professional growth opportunities in the field and highlight key references
