The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) is "the essential source" for information on Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety issues. Founded in 1939, AIHA is an organization of more than 12,000 professional members dedicated to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of environmental factors arising in or from the workplace that may result in injury, illness, impairment, or affect the well-being of workers and members of the community.

Established in 1939, the Metro New York AIHA serves the area's health and safety professionals, providing a forum in which to learn and exchange ideas.

NEIH Conference
The year’s NEIH conference is  being held on Friday, 12/4/15 at the Westin Hotel  in Princeton, NJ,  and is presented by the Philadelphia AIHA Section  and co- sponsored by Metro New York  and New Jersey AIHA Sections. On Thursday 12/3/15 the NJ AIHA Section will present four PDCs as part of this two day local sections’ event.

On behalf of NJ AIHA I am reaching out to all of you to get volunteers and topics for these PDCS.  Details are as follows:

Times: 2 sets of PDCs are given concurrently – PDCs 1/2 for  830A-1200P and PDCs 3/4 for 100P to 430P

Contact: Stephen Siegel, PDC Chairperson at stephen.siegel@dupont.com

If you are interested in conducting a PDC,  please email me a PDC title and discipline reference and a short summary of the educational goal and topic.  Also please include your contact information and a short bio (if available) .   Co-presenters for 1 PDC session are welcome as well.

Recent topics have included: Ethics, IAQ, Respiratory Protection, Ergonomics, Microbiological Evaluations, and  Control Practices.

We definitely have some flexibility on topics – They can be traditional or looking towards the future (e.g. smart-phone IH apps, databases, testing equipment developments).

I look forward to hearing from any of our members in all of the sections who wish to volunteer their time and expertise in educating and advancing the knowledge of the PDC attendees.
