2017 The Closing

bartholdi-libertyThe closing was covered by professional and scientific  organizations and by the news media this latter in the Boston Globe first recording the responses by the company spokesperson.  Until that point, the company had made no public disclosure of its decision to shutter the Institute.

The professional blogs were rapidly engaged, both Confined Space and Workers Compensation expressing dismay and concern.  Trade journals largely commented on the press release,  Business Insurance.

Our own professional societies reported the issue: HFES Bulletin  The Ergonomist, CIEHF the practitioners also bemoaned the demise The American Society of Safety Engineers.

My own opinion of the closing is not an appropriate for this site, but my take on the effect is here.
