  • On Thursday, November 17, 2011, the Central Ohio AIHA will be holding our November meeting, and the last of 2011. The November meeting is going to be held at Barley’s Smokehouse and Brewpub located in Grandview. This will be a free meeting and free dinner to all members.
    The topic for the November meeting:

    Residential Carbon Monoxide Detector Failure Rates
    Original research presented by Dr. Tim Ryan, PhD, CIH, CSP from the Department of Social and Public Health at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.

    Dr. Ryan tested 30 detectors in use in a community and found that more than half failed to function properly, alarming too early or too late. Forty percent of detectors failed to alarm in hazardous concentrations, despite outward indications that they were operating as intended. His research was published in the October 2011 issue of the American Journal of Public Health.

    Please reply to this email if you would like to attend the meeting. RSVP to Kate Arnold By Tuesday, November 15, 2011.
