The American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA) and the California Industrial Hygiene Council (CIHC) are asking lawmakers in California's State Legislature to ensure that Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH) have a seat at the table by requiring their membership on the California Toxic Substances Board, which would be created by Senate Bill 774. As currently written, the bill restricts membership on the Board to only one person from any of the following diverse professions: toxicology, chemistry, geology, industrial hygiene, or engineering specific to the statutory responsibilities of the Board.
Research conducted by the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) over the past year with its members, customers and stakeholders indicated that an updated brand with a clearer vision would better reflect the organization’s current membership and position it for growth.
After 106 years as the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), the nation’s oldest professional safety organization is considering changing its name and logo, in order to freshen its brand identity.
Thanks to a growing group of generous donors, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Foundation is celebrating a record year by awarding more than $303,000 in scholarships and grants to 116 students and society members. The Foundation announces its annual recipients every April in support of the occupational safety and health (OSH) profession nationwide.

When you think about “sustainability,” what comes to mind? Energy consumption, emissions reductions, polar bears, recycling, the triple bottom line? Most commonly it is a concept that has been associated with the environmental impacts of activities and decisions, but sustainability is about more than being green; it’s also about people.
In October, ASSE hosted its annual Leadership Conference. The conference aims to equip society officers with the knowledge and skills they need to lead the member communities for which they have volunteered and been elected to serve.
