Healthier Workplaces - Episode 3: The Power of Empathy

Welcome to the Healthier Workplaces Show, a program dedicated to highlighting the efforts of industry professionals who protect our workers and their communities from occupational and environmental hazards. This week’s guests are Tim Paz, who serves as the National Industrial Hygiene Program Manager for a Federal Agency, and Amy McCae, a nationally recognized consultant specializing in Empathetic Leadership and Mindfulness. We sat down with them to discuss the important role Empathy plays in making connections with others and how it can benefit you and your organization. The May 2022 issue of The Synergist featured a cover story on Harnessing the Hidden Power of Empathy, and how it can lead to effective leadership and greater compassion from OEHS professionals. In the article, authors Paz and McCae took a deep dive into why you need to be thinking both strategically AND empathetically about your audience and why it matters to them when you deliver a message. The Healthier Workplaces Show is hosted by industry veteran, Bob Krell. The series is produced for AIHA by Healthy Indoors® / IAQNET LLC. Learn more at
