The Industrial Hygiene Practice Specialty (IHPS) works to advance occupational safety and health in the workplace through sound industrial hygiene practices from asbestos to mold to exposure monitoring and everything in between. IHPS helps members become Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH), having a strong relationship with AIHA, and Certified Safety Professionals (CSP) and secure maintenance points.
The Industrial Hygiene Practice Specialty is sponsoring several sessions at Safety 2017. Click here to see the complete list. Be sure to put them on your calendar.
Industrial Hygiene Monitoring Considerations in Health Care Settings
If you missed the call, you can still gain the knowledge. Click here for the video. Download the text with live links to all those shown and discussed during the call.
Healthcare workers are at risk for a variety of occupational exposures to chemical hazards, including hazardous drugs, anesthetic gases, and disinfectants. While resources exist for guidance on assessing occupational exposures to these hazards, there is no single resource for safety professionals in healthcare settings to use in developing a defensible industrial hygiene (IH) monitoring program.

Roadmap Toward a Holistic Safety Culture
OSH is too often considered a functional area or a center of specific expertise, and OSH managers see themselves too often and too much as a capsulated competence center. Such an approach to OSH will always fall far short of what is needed for a successful, holistic, proactive and preventive safety culture.
