To best serve the occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) community, it’s important that we understand the current issues and emerging trends impacting the profession. Throughout the year, AIHA works with Volunteer Groups to publish a variety of thought leadership and content, also known as Bodies of Work, to spread awareness on topics that are strategic for the development of the OEHS field.

Facts Sheets present data in a format that emphasizes key points concisely, usually using bullet points, headings, or tables. Fact sheets often contain technical data, lists, statistics, educational material, or how-to advice. On occasion, they may summarize a longer document. Fact sheets can also be presented visually as infographics.

Guidance Documents suggest best practices and provide non-binding advice that follows a prescribed procedure or process. Guidance documents should be viewed only as recommendations unless specific regulatory requirements are cited.

Position Statements are short statements that reflect the association's stand on a particular viewpoint or issue related to occupational and environmental health and safety. A position statement may be included in the executive summary of a white paper.

White Papers are persuasive, in-depth reports or essays that include executive summaries, are supported by scientific research, and are written to educate the target audience on an issue or explain and promote a particular methodology. White papers are meant to help readers understand an issue, solve a problem, or make a decision.
