NIOSH’s Haas is Finalist for Service to America Medal

Posted By Mark Ellis, Wednesday, June 26, 2019

NIOSH behavioral scientist Emily Haas, Ph.D., is a finalist for a Service to America Medal – commonly known as a “Sammie,” in the Safety and Law Enforcement category.

Please consider voting for Dr. Haas for the Sammie’s People’s Choice Award, which is chosen by popular vote on the following link:  https://servicetoamericamedals.org/peoples-choice-award/.  Supporters can vote once a day from any device through July 8.

Dr. Haas is an internationally recognized behavioral scientist whose work in safety culture and safety management systems has directly contributed to preventing occupational illnesses and injuries in the mining industry.  In two years’ time (from 2016 to 2018), she conducted field research involving nearly 2,700 mine workers at 40 different mines in 17 states and internationally that resulted in mining companies tailoring their health and safety management methods and processes to better prepare their workers, improve worker performance and reduce injuries.  Dr. Haas collaborated with IMA-NA on the recent Second Edition of the Dust Control Handbook for Industrial Minerals Mining and Processing (https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/mining/works/coversheet2094.html).
