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.
