Preparing for the Next Pandemic
With our world getting smaller each day given the ease of transporting goods and people, and the impacts of climate change blurring the lines between animal ecosystems and pathogen reservoirs, another pandemic in our lifetime is a real possibility. How do we prepare for the next pandemic when we have not yet recovered from COVID-19?

THERMAL STRESSORS
Preventing Heat-Related Illnesses
Heat stress is a critical topic in worker safety. Unabated exposure to extreme heat during work can result in several occupational illnesses and, if not treated properly, even death. With summer upon us, now is a good time to review the risks, causes, policies, procedures, mitigation strategies, and training related to heat-related illnesses.

TECHNOLOGY
The Tech Tide
From the February 2017 issue: Every day, millions of workers bring their smartphones to work. As the capabilities of these devices improve, they can potentially be used—or misused—to capture all manner of data in the workplace.
INFECTIOUS DISEASES
No Boundaries
From the April 2018 issue: As the incidence of highly hazardous communicable diseases continues to rise, all relevant professionals, including industrial hygienists, should be involved in prevention efforts, training and education for occupations with potential exposure, and advocacy for increased federal support.

THERMAL STRESSORS
It's the Heat—And the Humidity
From the April 2020 issue: Heat-related illnesses are insidious conditions that can affect almost anyone with little warning, especially since symptoms may affect one’s ability to recognize the danger. All that is needed for the onset of heat stress is for the energy and blood demanded by the muscles to compete with the body’s cooling mechanisms.
