We launched www.ihvalue.org to build a place for industrial hygienists (IHs) and value related resources. AIHA introduced exciting new research findings, including an approach that enables IHs to demonstrate that, by protecting the health of workers and the community, they simultaneously safeguard an organization’s license to operate and provide competitive business advantage. Years in the making, the joint AIHA - ABIH study, Strategy to Demonstrate the Value of Industrial Hygiene, found that in many cases, business leadership does not fully understand the value that IH brings to the business and, in turn, in many cases industrial hygienists do not understand the company’s business and how they add value to it.
Imagine what could happen when 12,000 IH experts begin applying this strategy to demonstrate the powerful impact the profession can have on business. We often talk about wanting our profession to be a household name. Now we have the strategy to make that happen. These results are a beginning, not an end.
