Occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) professionals who’d like to present at the 2018 International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA) 11th International Scientific Conference are being invited to submit proposals to the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA).
The proposals should be on the latest OEHS information, trends, technology, and best practices. They’ll be accepted from January 3 to January 29, 2018. IOHA education sessions will be held September 24–26, 2018, in Washington, D.C. at the Marriott Marquis Hotel. Professional development courses will be held September 22, 23, and 27.
"While AIHA is an association based in America, we are honored to open up our nation's capital to the countries of the world," said Alla Orlova AIHA's Director of Education. "We look forward to providing an international platform where industrial hygiene professionals from around the globe can come together to share ideas for the betterment of all of our communities through innovative educational opportunities."
The theme of the 11th annual IOHA conference is "Bringing Better Health to Workers Worldwide" and the event will feature various education formats. Experts are encouraged to submit proposals for any of these opportunities including professional development courses (PDCs), which are in-depth, more formal learning experiences, and education sessions, which make up the main conference program, using the proposal submission portal on the conference website. The conference will also feature case study presentations, scientific research presentations, professional poster presentations, and student poster presentations.
Presenting at IOHA allows individuals an opportunity to expand their career, increase their visibility, and build their reputation internationally among fellow professionals. Presenters can also earn certification maintenance points, find new opportunities for dialogue and discussion, and introduce new concepts. This will not only benefit their colleagues, but workers around the world.
