Inside Quality Digest Live for Nov. 10, 2017

Overcoming stress at work, the benefits of AS9100, and meaningless food labels

Published: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 13:00

QDL co-host Dirk Dusharme was on vacation for our Nov. 10, 2017, episode, but we ably covered for his absence with some thought-provoking stories and great guests. Let’s take a look:

“What Really Causes Workplace Stress”

A multidisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Southern California are in the process of studying nurses as part of a 10-week project. Their results will not only tell us about the effects of stress in the workplace, but also how engineers can design and interpret experiments to improve many facets of the human experience.

Interview: Gene Morrison

Morrison is the global aviation, space, and defense program manager and AS9100 lead auditor for Intertek, as well as author of the article, “Aerospace Faces Challenges as Market Rapidly Expands.” Click here to register for the webinar he is presenting on this topic, “Elevating into the Aviation, Space, and Defense Industry,” coming up Nov. 16, 2017.

“‘Gluten-Free Water’ Shows Absurdity of Trend in Labeling What’s Absent”

Yes, apparently “gluten-free” water is actually a thing, and people actually purchase it. This article from food scientist Brandon McFadden considers the absurdity of some food-labeling marketing strategies, and also asks us to consider the similarities between buying some lunch and buying a Lincoln.

Off-Script: Visual clues

Quality Digest CEO Jeff Dewar joined the show via Skype to give us his hot take on some visual hot messes. Seeing ain’t always believing.

Catch us again for another episode of Quality Digest Live this coming Friday, Nov. 17, 2017. You can watch us either on our home page or our dedicated player page. See you there!
