    We Need Your Support

    One of the main activities managed by the Guideline Foundation is the development of Emergency Response Planning Guidelines (ERPGs), which are air concentration guidelines for single exposures to agents. They are intended for use as tools to assess the adequacy of accident prevention and emergency response plans, including transportation emergency planning, community emergency response plans, and incident prevention and mitigation. To learn more about this program, click here or access our ERPG Fast Facts infographic.

    Maintaining and expanding the ERPG program each year takes significant time and money. Currently, no federal funding is available to help us maintain this important program to help provide our communities in their time of need. To this end—and in particular, if your company manufactures and/or distributes any of the 150+ chemicals for which ERPGs have been developed—please consider making an annual donation to support our efforts.

    Thank you in advance for your financial support enabling the AIHA Guideline Foundation to continue this important work. To contribute, please click on this link. For more information and to contribute, contact Laura Cilano Garcia or 703-846-0748.
