Continuing the partnership we began last year, UC Davis and UC Berkeley will jointly offer our annual symposia in January 2019. This year we will explore how our research and advocacy can change existing policy and help to create new policies that protect workers and public health. Our continuing medical education will continue to address practice gaps with the latest research in occupational and environmental health.
Friday January 25th
41st annual UC Berkeley Lela Morris Symposium
This joint symposium presented by UC Berkeley and UC Davis will explore the impacts of new policies on occupational health.
Day one of the symposium will discuss the making, implementation, and assessment of policies designed to improve worker health. Speakers will present information on the process by which a policy is created and why. The challenges and successes with implementing and assessing new standards in different industries will be discussed. Recent standards in lead, silica, hotel housekeeping, safe patient handling, workplace violence, and sexual harassment will be discussed in detail, along with a discussion of ongoing implementation and assessment strategies. Health policy experts will discuss how the impact of these policies might be assessed over time.
Day one of the symposium is intended for occupational and environmental health and safety professionals including registered environmental health specialists, industrial hygienists, certified safety professionals, occupational medicine physicians and mid-level practitioners, occupational health nurses, and other allied health professionals.
