Six OLS students specializing in Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) volunteered during the Beyond Safety Conference Expo held at Radisson Inn at Star Plaza in Merrillville, IN on February 19~20, 2013.
This year’s event attracted more than 500 participants not only from NW Indiana, but also from Chicago and Indianapolis. Students that attended this conference not only learned new EHS topics during various sessions, but they also encountered opportunities to network with local safety professionals.
Two students that attended were able to arrange summer internship interviews with a company in the region.
Angela Quail, OLS – EHS student, said “Attending the Beyond Safety Conference allowed me to be exposed to many different aspects of EHS. It also aided me in securing my first internship.”
