Looking Towards the Future: How Safety Will Evolve

In this episode, Editor Sydny Shepard takes a look at what is in store for the safety and health industry in the future.

Over the course of the year, the OH&S editorial team has looked back on the history of the occupational health and safety industry as a way to celebrate 90 years of bringing continued education and timely information to safety professionals. We touched on the storied past of safety, including fall protection, hand protection, respiratory protection, industrial hygiene and more, but now it is time to discuss the future.

In this episode of the podcast, which is the last to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Occupational Health & Safety magazine, Editor Sydny Shepard discusses the future of safety. In a way, we have already arrived in the future of safety when you look at the implementation of technology on worksites around the country, but there are so many other ways safety will evolve over the course of the next few decades.
