11th Historical Perspectives Tour

It is hard to believe but this is our 11th year conducting the Historical Perspectives on Occupational Safety and Health Tour.  The NYNJERC developed this tour to bring students to sites of historical and/or contemporary significance in the occupational safety and health and environmental fields.  This tour has been successful in bridging the OSH fields to better understand how occupational and environmental exposures have occurred, in order to prevent future exposures so that workplace conditions and health can be improved.

This year we are visiting:
June 5      Boott Cotton Mill, Lowell, MA
June 6      Fishing Vessel Safety, Portland, ME
June 7      Sappi Paper Mill, Skowhegan, ME
June 8      Granite Quarry, Barre, VT
June 9      Wightmans Lumber and Logging, Portlandville, NY

Follow us through the blog, as well as on Facebook (
