Words from the 2016 San Diego President
travel past the halfway mark of 2016, let’s take a moment to reflect on what
we’ve accomplished together as a local section. It is the mission of the San
Diego chapter of AIHA to provide a safe and inspiring community for our local
Industrial Hygiene and Occupational Health Professionals. We want to provide
resources that help you solve problems at work and advance professionally. We
also want to provide opportunities to meet and network with other members in
our area and share concerns and best practices on a local level.
far this year, we have met as a group to learn about OSHA Chemical Management
and PELs, Hearing Conservation and Asbestos; our group was represented at the
Festival of Science and Engineering at Petco Park; we created a newsletter to
make it easier to keep in touch with the Board; and we implemented a credit
card payment system for the meetings (small victories count!). If you joined us
during those first six month, thank you!
forward to the second half of the year, we have several opportunities to learn,
network and come together as a professional community. Stay in touch with us
via our brand new website that goes live in July. Join us at the September
Professional Development Symposium, where we will have presentations on the
aging workforce and silica/combustible dust. We are also trying to get
fun events together at a brewery and cruise ship.
professional niche is a small one. Let’s use this group to lean on one another
and have fun.
