Exposure Banding Vision Statements

  1. AIHA in partnership with NIOSH is educating health & safety professionals on the importance of utilizing Occupational Exposure Banding (OEB) in their exposure risk assessments.
  2. IH and allied professionals, e.g., Product Stewards, Occupational Health Nurses and Doctors, etc., develop and actively use practical guidance for application of OEB in their professional practice.

NIOSH Resources

  • Apps and Digital Tools from NIOSH The following NIOSH apps and software tools provide the practicing industrial hygienist with quick and easy access to the information necessary to evaluate exposure profiles and determine if the exposures are acceptable, not acceptable or if more data is needed to make the determination of acceptability.
  • New NIOSH Report Outlines Its Occupational Exposure Banding Process A new technical report published by NIOSH describes the agency’s voluntary occupational exposure banding process for chemical risk management.


  • Conference
    • AIHA University Occupational Exposure Banding Virtual Conference Recordings Learn how to apply occupational exposure banding strategies and tools for chemical exposures in the workplace.
