The American Industrial Hygiene Foundation’s (AIHF) 32nd Annual Fun Run/Walk takes place during AIHce EXP. The event is all about having fun, getting exercise, and giving back to the industrial hygiene community.
Leadership. Loyalty. Teamwork. Strong communications. Tech savvy.
These are some of the qualities and characteristics of military veterans. They are also the traits of an occupational safety and health professional, which is why the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) believes that military members separating from the U.S. Armed Forces should consider workplace safety as a second career.
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.
The American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA) and the Occupational Hygiene Training Association® (OHTA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that details several areas of future collaboration. AIHA and OHTA plan to build on current collaborative efforts to promote better standards of occupational hygiene practice throughout the world.
The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) says it’s ready to use its network of members and stakeholders to help address fatal occupational injuries that increased for the third straight year according to newly released data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The data showed that there were 5,190 workplace fatalities in the United States in 2016, up 7 percent from 2015.
Most truths about communication are timeless. With all the cultural and political tension we observe today it might seem this was written as a response to that tension.

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) plans to find out. Registration is now open for ASSE’s Safety 2018 Professional Development Conference & Exposition in San Antonio. The nation's largest conference for occupational safety and health professionals – expected to draw more than 8,000 people from 40 countries – takes place June 3-6 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center on the banks of the San Antonio Riverwalk.
The American Industrial Hygiene Association’s (AIHA) Board of Directors has approved a slate of public policy priorities for 2018 and also established a permanent government relations working group.
New public policy priorities for 2018 fall under the following topics: hazards (such as beryllium, silica, and first responder exposure to opioids), assessments (including hazard banding, sensors, and teen workplace safety), and profession (IH Professional Pathways and title protection).
Changes in safety and health approaches are needed both in and outside of government. Many established beliefs and assumptions concerning government operations currently are being re-evaluated and questioned. This reset presents an opportunity.
