An Ailing Economy Raises Many Concerns for AIHce 2008 to Address

Despite where you may stand on the issue, there's no debating that the signs of a recession are here: plunging home sales, a volatile stock market, layoffs, and hiring and salary freezes. In this economic downturn, all are affected. Additionally, rising fuel prices have many faced with the dilemma of where best to spend their $4--on a gallon of gas, or a gallon of milk?

Many question arise from these uncertain times, and some help may come in the form of AIHce 2008's Opening General Session keynote, titled "The Future of Work" and scheduled for 8 to 9:30 a.m. on Monday, June 2.

Presented by renowned economic futurist Jeremy Rifkin--founder and president of the Foundation for Economic Trends and author of several books, including the international bestseller "The Biotech Century"--the session promises to provide insight into the scientific and technological changes affecting tomorrow's economy, workers, and environment.

Points of interest listed in the agenda include:

  • Uncover the bold changes ahead in the nature of employment
  • Gain powerful insight into what these global changes may mean to industrial hygiene and to business in general
  • Think proactively about how energy resources could greatly impact your employees, students, workers, and clients

Of course, increasing your value to your organization is another way to keep your employment secure. IH professionals who wish to learn what they can do to increase their value should plan to attend the following General Session keynote, titled "The IH Value Proposition," scheduled for Tuesday, June 3 from 8 to 9 a.m. Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. President Jeffrey P. Pino's presentation will include Tom Grumbles, former AIHC president and manager of product safety and occupational health for Sasol North America Inc., and Dave Eherts, vice president of environmental health and safety for Sikorsky Helicopters, in a group discussion about the value industrial hygienists add to an organization's bottom line.
