CPAG helps advance AIHA’s mission and values by providing input and advice to the AIHA Board and staff regarding the content AIHA provides to members and other stakeholders. Content may include documents, articles, white papers, fact sheets, publications, and more. Here you can find information on how you can contribute to the development and advocacy of AIHA content.
In 2019, AIHA invested in a rigorous, multi-year research study to identify current and future industry trends. These findings were translated into an actionable content strategy for the Association. The CPAG Content Priorities Summary, released at the end of 2019, is a direct result of those findings. Read AIHA's 2020 Environmental Scan Report.
CPAG was developed to help AIHA determine the key content priorities that AIHA should focus on to maximize relevancy and impact on the occupational and environmental health and safety profession. These priorities are reviewed and modified on an approximately 5-year cycle based on input from stakeholders inside and outside the Industrial Hygiene (IH) community.
CPAG has three primary roles:
- Recommend Content Priorities to the Board and facilitate their implementation.
- Make recommendations to the Board regarding approval of publication content proposals.
- Review existing content and makes product lifecycle recommendations.
