FALLS CHURCH, Va. (June 3, 2013) — The American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA) is pleased to announce the development of the Korean translation of IH MOD. This translation was done by Jooyeon Hwang, a doctoral student from the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota and Chung Sik Yoon, PhD, CIH, from the School of Public Health at Seoul National University in Korea.
IH MOD, a flexible spreadsheet available for free download on the AIHA website, implements many basic modeling and statistical analysis algorithms and helps industrial hygienists understand and use modeling and statistical analysis as aspects in exposure assessments. The spreadsheets provide for a transparent understanding of each algorithm’s function, parameters, and results.
Industrial hygienists engaged in initial and ongoing occupational exposure assessment work will benefit by having an easy-to-use implementation of mathematical modeling and analysis methods. IH MOD can also be used for downstream user and consumer exposure assessments, which are relevant in the European REACH efforts and other regulatory-based exposure and risk control programs.
In addition to Korean, IH MOD is also available in English, French and German versions.
