In memoriam - David LaHoda

OSHA Healthcare Connection, July 31, 2012

It is with great sadness that I share the news that David LaHoda, our good friend and colleague, and author of this blog, passed away suddenly on July 25, 2012. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

David was the author of this e-newsletter and the OSHA Healthcare Advisor website and blog. David's passion for his work shone through in every piece he penned. His knowledge about all things related to OSHA was unparalleled and he conveyed his knowledge in a simple, clear manner that enlightened all who read his updates. His use of humor educated and illuminated and his lighthearted style made government rules and regulatory decisions entertaining and easy to understand.

In addition to writing and maintaining OSHA Healthcare Advisor, David was the writer and editor of the long-running newsletter Medical Environment Update, as well as numerous HCPro books and e-learning courses. He also manned the Compliance Hotline, providing reassurance, advice, and guidance to anyone with an urgent OSHA question.
