AIHce 2016 Off and Running

A rainy weekend that failed to deter record Preakness crowds at Baltimore's Pimlico racetrack on Saturday gave way to sunny skies May 23 as the AIHce 2016 conference and expo commenced in earnest.

BALTIMORE -- A rainy weekend that failed to deter record Preakness crowds at Baltimore's Pimlico racetrack on Saturday gave way to sunny skies May 23 as the AIHce 2016 conference and expo commenced in earnest.

AIHA and ACGIH officials welcomed attendees who filled a ballroom inside the Baltimore Convention Center for the opening ceremony, with AIHA President Daniel Anna, Ph.D., CIH, CSP, giving a shout out to a delegation attending from China's State Administration of Work Safety and greeting those not on site who are attending this year's Virtual Conference. Anna said AIHA's search for a new CEO should be completed by this years's Fall Conference, which will take place in San Antonio in October.

Steven Lacey, Ph.D, CIH, CSP, president-elect of AIHA, spoke about young workers' safety and urged attendees to focus on the fact that young workers are twice as likely as older ones to be injured at work. "We want to change this," he said, asking the crowd to help distribute and get the word out about Safety Matters, an interactive module AIHA and NIOSH have developed for use in schools and community organizations.

Monday's keynote speaker, Dr. Adam Steltzner, lead landing engineer for NASA's Curiosity Mars rover, discussed the decade- long project he headed that successfully landed that unmanned vehicle on Mars in 2012. He urged his audience to separate people from the ideas they hold, hold on to doubt, and find something to love in everyone they work with.
