AIHA's mission includes providing cutting-edge educational and training resources that help members protect and improve occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS). As we are constantly looking for new content creators that can provide well-informed, well-written information to our audiences, we invite members to submit their content ideas. Creating content with AIHA provides great opportunities for professionals and students to publish creative intellectual works; nurture the skills that new creators need for success; and cultivate their professional development.
This is a chance to have your name noticed by your peers, exchange ideas, earn CE credit hours, and establish yourself as an expert. Creators should cover new, relevant developments in the OEHS field or in-depth, technically oriented, scientifically proven subjects with broad appeal and focus on practical matters.

When you are ready to propose your idea, think about the answers to the following questions:

- Is there an existing gap in AIHA content and education?
- Who is the intended audience? and therefore,
- Why would this audience be interested?
- What type of content channel works best for this piece and its audience?
- Who might want to work on this idea with you?

Content channels are the media through which you share and promote the content you create. The channels you use to deliver your idea will vary based on your audience. When it comes down to making your idea a reality, it can be challenging to decide which type of content channel you want to use. This document will cover the various channels available to distribute your content. When submitting your proposal for review, you may choose one primary channel along with additional channels where your content will be delivered.
Ready to submit your idea?
Ideas for publications, webinars, articles, blogs, tool kits, and document translations can be submitted to AIHA using the Content Proposal Form. Proposals for in-person teaching opportunities (such as PDCs and AIHce sessions) are submitted during the annual Call for Proposals that usually opens in June and closes in September.
Once a proposal is submitted, an AIHA staff member will review your proposal and may contact you if he or she requires clarification on any point. Additional steps may be necessary depending on the type of product you are looking to develop.
For publications and webinars, please check AIHA University before submitting a proposal to avoid duplicating a product that we already offer. You may also want to contact us about product viability prior to submitting a proposal, as we know our market and can help you refine your idea.
