David Michaels, NAEM Executive Director Speaking at UL EHSS Forum

"Dr. Michaels is widely regarded as a pivotal business leader in this space over the last eight years, and this is an unprecedented opportunity to get his insight into where U.S. EHS and sustainability programs are headed," said Mark Ward, general manager at UL EHS Sustainability.

UL EHS Sustainability has announced the keynote speakers for its American EHS&S Forum: Dr. David Michaels, former head of OSHA, and Carol Singer Neuvelt, executive director of the National Association for Environmental Management, are headlining the May 3-4 event at the George Jones Museum in Nashville.

Michaels will discuss a new approach to sustainability in the workplace and Neuvelt will discuss the role of transparency in changing how companies manage the EHS and sustainability (EHS&S) function at the event, which is open to the public, with tickets available here.

The company noted Michaels was a key contributor to the OSHA white paper on sustainability in the workplace. "Dr. Michaels is widely regarded as a pivotal business leader in this space over the last eight years, and this is an unprecedented opportunity to get his insight into where U.S. EHS and sustainability programs are headed," said Mark Ward, general manager at UL EHS Sustainability.

"Employers are only truly sustainable when they ensure the safety, health, and welfare of not only their employees, but all employees across their supply chain," said Michaels, who in January 2017 rejoined the faculty of George Washington University. "The sustainability movement is going to continue to evolve. Leading companies have recognized that while this brings challenges, there are also many opportunities for innovation."

Neuvelt will discuss findings from NAEM's 2017 EHS&S Software Buyers Guide report, which shows that working to provide greater external transparency is among the leading reasons companies shop for commercial software to track EHSS performance. "From the integration of EHS&S metrics into product development to the emergence of supply chain reporting, to meeting stakeholders demand for transparency, the EHS&S function today is a source of value creation across a business," she said. "Given the challenges of this new role, the use of commercial software tools is increasingly indispensable to managing global EHS programs."
