Jim Jones, Executive Vice President, Strategic Alliances & Industry Relations, HCPA, was named to the Board of Directors of the Product Stewardship Society (PSS). PSS is a professional association of individuals who work on product stewardship. It was created in 2012 to recognize that more and more companies, government agencies and NGOs are employing staff to work on product stewardship, yet product stewardship as a profession was not clearly defined and there was no single “home” for product stewardship professionals.
PSS offers training and a “community of practice” to enable professionals to promote responsible design, development, and management of products throughout their life cycle. The Product Stewardship Society is an affiliate of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA).
