The BBA and MassCOSH hosted a program on occupation disease claims on Monday night.

On Monday night, the BBA and BBF grantee the Massachusetts Coalition for Occupational Safety and Health (MassCOSH), teamed up to host a program on occupational disease claims. The training offered a in depth look at occupational disease claims – both the legal analysis now being applied by the courts and the medical analysis applied by occupational health professionals.

Beyond the Billable reached to Marcy Goldstein-Gelb, the Executive Director of MassCOSH, to learn more about the training.

What key topics did you touch on during the training?
“The training focused on occupational health trends in Massachusetts and recent legal developments pertaining to toxic tort case law.”

What do you hope that attendees learned from the event?
“With clinicians, attorneys, labor union representatives and state agency representatives in attendance, we engaged in a rich discussion of the continuum of approaches to ensuring worker health – from preventing exposures through safety measures and effective public policy to ensuring swift treatment of occupational diseases to pursuing compensation through toxic tort cases.”
