Building Leadership Skills to Strengthen Your Career and Our Profession

Occupational hygiene professionals are tasked with understanding, managing and preventing significant exposures that lead to adverse health effects across every industry throughout our world of diverse work and communities.  To a non-professional this may sound fairly simple in principle to achieve.  However in practice occupational hygiene requires strong leadership, communication and teamwork skills to drive changes that ultimately protect people and communities.  It is not surprising that surveys of business and organizational executive confirm that employers want strong leadership and communication skills in their EHS professionals in addition to excellent scientific and technical expertise.  Yet, many informal surveys of occupational hygiene professionals illustrate that most have extensive technical education but do not have formal “leadership” training.  Feedback from practitioners indicate that most obtain leadership skills are learned “on the job”, by “trial and error” and through mentoring with peers.  Leadership is no different than any other set of technical skills; they can also be learned through effective training programs and professional development opportunities.

This interactive presentation will explore core concepts of leadership and opportunities to more formalize leadership training opportunities that will benefit every occupational hygiene professional and our global occupational hygiene profession.
