The American Industrial Hygiene Association® has reached out to Japanese counterpart organizations of International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA), Japan Occupational Hygiene Association (JOHA) and Japan Association for Working Environment Measurement (JAWE), as well as individual AIHA Japanese members, in an offer of support and outreach in light of the recent devastation that has struck Japan.
Dr. Michael Brandt, President of AIHA, responded to the disaster, “AIHA extends sympathies and condolences to Japan at this difficult time. The disaster in Japan has affected us all, raising awareness of our connections as a global community and touching us deeply.
“AIHA has pledged support services to these members and partner organizations in an effort to aid recovery. AIHA will attempt to match resources and skills to our Japanese partners to provide assistance. Our international partners, JOHA and JWAE, strive to preserve the health and safety of Japan’s workforce and communities and these efforts should not be further strained at this difficult time.”
