On Feb. 20 and 21, the National Safety Council (NSC) presented its first annual Workplace Fatigue Conference. It convened a diverse cross-section of leaders in the field of workplace fatigue management.
I was one of the lucky “birthday” winners to receive a free copy of Meir Kryger’s latest book, “The Mystery of Sleep,” at the AAST meeting in Indianapolis last fall. TMoS is touted as “an authoritative and accessible guide to what happens when we shut our eyes at night.” Indeed, I found the format, tone and relevance of Kryger’s book to live up to the hype.
The AAST 2018 Annual Meeting is quickly approaching. Whether it’s your first conference or you’re a veteran, everyone could use help maximizing their time. Savvy conference-goers know this: While sessions are valuable, the conversations between them are invaluable. Face-to-face networking with your peers is the No. 1 reason why you should attend any conference.
