New technology has had an incredible impact on the systems, tools, and information the ES&H professional uses today to become better equipped, more productive, and more competitive. This roundtable will provide updates on new technology and will compare different operating systems, discuss a variety of applications available for phones that can be used by the ES&H professional, describe how to use social media during emergencies, cloud networking, explore updates on emergency response software, and describe an approach for managing industrial hygiene data.
