USE 2017: Resolve to Be There

Posted on by Garrett Burnett, MS, MBA, and Thomas Cunningham, PhD

8-31-16_use_logo_finalWelcome to a new year. Are you ready to set your resolutions for this year? How about starting by learning more about the international Understanding Small Enterprises (USE) Conference, which is being held in the U.S. for the first time this coming October 25-27, 2017. NIOSH is collaborating with the Center for Health, Work & Environment at the Colorado School of Public Health to host USE 2017.

Small business owners, researchers, public health professionals, and students from around the world will come together in Denver to discuss the unique needs of small businesses and share strategies for cultivating healthy work environments.

The conference’s theme is “Worker Well-being and Sustainable Business Health: From Ideas to Achievable Reality.” Topics for sessions and workshops include:

  • Occupational Safety, Health, and Well-being
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • The Business Case – A safe workplace is a productive workplace
  • Public–Private Partnerships

Check out the schedule and speakers on the conference website. We are excited about the program and the opportunity to carry on the great tradition set by the previous conference hosts in The Netherlands, New Zealand, and Denmark.

We are still accepting abstracts (the deadline is January 15).  **Note deadline extended to January 31.**

This year, make a few of your resolutions work-related.  This conference will help you fulfill them.  We’ve provided a few suggestions below to help get you started:

  • Learn about the latest research on safety and health in small businesses
  • Network with industry experts from across the globe
  • Get in-depth training on how to bring safety and wellness to work
  • Build lasting connections in the small business safety and health community
  • Most importantly – Share your research, innovation, or best practice!

We promise that these resolutions will be much more fulfilling than losing those stubborn 5 pounds and help you improve your workplace in the process.

Happy New Year, and we’ll see you in Denver!

    Thanks for the article! Not sure if we’ll have enough revenue to make it this year, but here’s hoping to be able to make it in 2018! Cheers, Will Frazier

    This is probably the best thing to boost small scale industry and give economy a further boost and creating more jobs rapidly & indirectly

    USE 2017 will be one of the greatest conferences addressing the various aspects of small scale business development. It is indeed a fact that technology has gained significant importance where connecting the concepts of business development with those of modern day internet marketing is of paramount importance. From striving to get professional content writing services from expert writers up to pushing the limits of reaching maximum target audience by integrating the brand via social media platforms; businesses have really adapted the fastest ways to market themselves better. I hope the conference will be a great value addition for all sorts of startups and small scale businesses.
