Inside Quality Digest Live for Jan. 19, 2018

Transitioning to ISO 45001 and our first Tech Corner of the year

Published: Tuesday, January 23, 2018 - 13:00

During last Friday’s episode of Quality Digest Live, we looked at the far-reaching implications of a prospective merger, previewed our latest webinar with DNV, considered the importance of fun at work, and inspected some interesting stereo microscopes from Vision Engineering. Here’s a closer look at our show:

“CVS Merger With Aetna: Healthcare Cure or Curse?”

This is a prospective $77 billion deal that could offer some tantalizing advantages or worrisome disadvantages for consumers. We consider how it might go down if federal regulators approve CVS Pharmacy’s acquisition of insurer Aetna.

“Transitioning to ISO 45001

Ismael Belmarez joined us via Skype to discuss the updated occupational health and safety standard, ISO 45001, which is replacing OHSAS 18001 in May. Belmarez also teased the webinar, “Transition to ISO 45001: How to Get Started,” which he is presenting in conjunction with Quality Digest on Jan. 23. Click here to register.

The ROI of Having Fun

One of the keys to any successful organization is embracing the kind of culture that supports and engages its workforce. Allocating some time for fun and a little extra break time can help.

Tech Corner: Vision Engineering Stereo Microscopes

Craig Smith, district manager for Vision Engineering, joined us in the studio to look at three of their unique and user-friendly stereo microscopes.
