    5 Must-Listen Podcasts for EHS Pros

    Need some inspiration or some new ideas? These five safety and sustainability podcasts are a good place to start.

    1. “Sustainability Metrics: A Tale of Two Companies”

    Here’s a sustainability podcast which provides some real-world examples of businesses who transformed their operations towards improved sustainability. The tone is less rehearsed than some of the others on this list, and is led by some top influencers in the EHS industry.

    2. “Noise and Vibration at Work”

    The U.K.’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) may work with a different set of laws and regulations than here in the U.S., but the safety and sustainability concerns are the same.

    Plus, the accents are so pleasing to listen to, we had to include this one!

    This safety podcast starts out with some other types of safety issues, so you may want to skip ahead to where they cover noise levels. There’s a bit about the music industry, and then they get into noise and vibration levels at factories and other facilities. 

    3. “Turn it Down a Notch”

    It might be interesting to compare how two different governmental agencies from two different countries cover the same topic. Therefore, here you go: how the CDC covers noise safety. Compare to number two on this list.

    4. “Creating a Culture of Safety in Healthcare”

    The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) offers several excellent podcasts, but this is one of their best. It’s episode 16 on their podcast page, and covers ways for hospital staff to allow for a safety culture to flourish at their facilities.

    5. “Creating An Engaged Organization By Focusing On Sustainability In The Workplace”

    The Future Organization is run by Jacbob Morgan, a popular figure and leading authority in how the workplace will change in the future. This podcast on their website covers the meaning of “sustainability” in the workplace. Gives good coverage of a broad topic that can serve as food for thought for any EHS professional. Covers employee engagement and how that ties into a company’s culture of sustainability.
