Improved workplace safety goal of AIHA, NIOSH partnership

The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) has signed a partnership agreement with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), creating an alliance that will aim to advance the protection of workers, promote best practices, and encourage employers to develop and utilize occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) management systems.

“We value this opportunity to partner with NIOSH to support and encourage research, training, and other initiatives,” said AIHA President Roy Buchan, DrPH, CIH.

AIHA and NIOSH will provide outreach, communication, and professional development opportunities to promote worker health and safety by:

  • Developing and disseminating information on worker health and safety at conferences and media outlets, including the NIOSH and AIHA Web sites;

  • Participating at conferences, meetings, and other key events where OEHS issues are proactively addressed;

  • Advancing the effectiveness of OEHS research and promoting and facilitating the transfer of research results to practice in preventing occupational illnesses and injuries;

  • Strengthening recruiting efforts for students to enter OEHS graduate and undergraduate training programs.

    The Safety Selfie: It’s time to take a “snap shot” of your safety program and contemplate what others see

    We all know perception is reality and that people perceive things differently. As a safety manager, your perception of your safety program almost certainly differs from that of your workers and your managers. We will use our “Safety Selfies” to expose weaknesses, real and perceived, and to talk about how best to make improvements.
