Dr. Heshmat talks with James on why they made the decision to transition from manual temperature monitoring to thermographic imaging, the steps taken when a positive test is returned, and how to conduct contact tracing. Listen in and see how Dr. Letitia Heshmat and Mobile-Med work to provide work health solutions.
In our 3rd and last Client Side Chat series, James chats with Sondra Lavoie, CSP, ASP, CHST, on Women in Safety: the barriers and how to overcome them. In this episode, Sondra discusses some of the biases uniquely faced by women in safety, setting up boundaries, and saying “yes and” as a way of saying no. Sondra discusses her success such as getting out into the field to overcome perceptions and being viewed as a safety professional: fair and as an equal. Sondra also discusses the workforce and organizational cultures and how they need to change. Check out this episode to learn about the challenges women in safety face and how everyone can help make the workplace fair.
