Presenting a poster at the National Conference on Worker Health and Safety is an opportunity to help conference attendees learn about community occupational health and safety projects and research. Poster presenters illustrate their findings by displaying graphs, photos, diagrams and a small amount of text on the poster boards.
The Poster Session will take place on Thursday, December 7th during the Expo @ COSHCON.
Posters should highlight worker health and safety research and/or campaigns;
Submit poster abstract (up to 250 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 15, 2023; and
All poster presenters must register for and attend at least one day of the conference.
Poster presenters should be prepared to give a brief synopsis of their project (1 minute), be comfortable discussing their project and answering questions about it to conference participants. Posters will be located in the exhibit hall with exhibitors and other informational tables. Student and limited income price available as well as a limited number of scholarships.
Posters should give viewers a high-level overview of projects or research that presenters are involved with.
