Challenges Facing Women In Safety
January 17, 2008

As more women enter the safety, health and environmental (SH&E) profession, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) student section at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) and the Safety Sciences Departmental Teaching Circle at IUP recently held a “Women in Safety” forum to address the challenges facing women in the industry, the evolution of women in safety and the role of women in the future of the occupational SH&E profession.

The forum focused on several issues concerning women in safety including: researching the evolution of women in the safety sciences field; examining female representation in the safety sciences curriculum; identifying ways to recruit and keep women students in the field; identifying some of the gender-based struggles encountered in the program and workplace struggles; examining specific conflicts developed from women’s work in the field; and broadening the understanding of women’s capabilities in the field.
