PureSafety and EHS Today Launch Future Leaders in EHS
Date:2/16/2010

Program offers $5,000 scholarship, resources and expertise to universities and students

Franklin, Tenn. (Vocus) February 16, 2010 -- PureSafety, a leading provider of results-driven software and information solutions for workforce safety and health, and EHS Today, the leading publication for environmental, health and safety (EHS) professionals, today announced the launch of Future Leaders in EHS.

The Future Leaders program was created to support and encourage EHS students as they respond to the challenges of the 21st century workplace and lead the way in keeping tomorrow's workers safe, healthy and on the job. The program's initial focus will be a scholarship program recognizing outstanding students in EHS-related programs.

"Today's EHS students will shape the future of this critical profession, and we're proud to sponsor this ambitious program to enhance their education,” said Bill Grana, PureSafety's president and CEO. "This is a natural extension of our ongoing university outreach efforts to help students understand how technology can empower EHS professionals to overcome safety and health challenges, while delivering bottom-line results for their organizations.”

Additional outreach support includes PureSafety's safety, health and risk management professionals contributing time and expertise to educate and mentor students, as well as providing the company's software and information solutions to several programs.

"Effective EHS practices are essential to how successful companies conduct business,” said Sandy Smith, executive editor of EHS Today. "EHS Today is proud to partner with PureSafety to recognize the EHS leaders of tomorrow in this first-of-its-kind program.”

Future Leaders is kicking off with a call for applications for a $5,000 scholarship to be awarded in December 2010. Professors, academic advisors, program administrators and EHS professionals are encouraged to identify top students and help them apply.

In addition to the scholarship, the winning student will serve on the EHS Today Editorial Advisory Board for two years, and will be profiled in a special section of the December 2010 issue of EHS Today dedicated to the Future Leaders program. All applicants will receive a free, one-year digital subscription to EHS Today.

The winning student's school will also receive one year of free access to PureSafety's workforce safety and health software and information solutions. In addition to online training courses that may be integrated into the school's EHS curriculum, these solutions will give students and faculty hands-on experience in how technology can transform EHS management and enhance performance. The solutions can also be used by the school's own EHS professionals to better manage the delivery, tracking and reporting of their safety and health programs for university students, faculty and staff.
