Goals and Objectives

  • AIHce planning (educational sessions, professional development courses, NAMWG brochure, student poster judges).
  • Communications and outreach (e.g., fact sheet development, Synergist articles, Good Nano Guide support, education outreach to other AIHA committees and local sections, presenting at various conferences and symposiums outside of AIHA, and fostering input to the development of national and international standards).
  • NAMWG strategies (e.g., long-term strategic planning, future AIHce offerings, leadership development).

Current Projects

  • Product Disclosures and Declarations for Nanoscale and Advanced Materials (Declarable/Restricted Substances)
  • The Randy Ogle/Paul Baron Award


  • AIHA Outstanding Volunteer Group (2022, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008)

The Randy Ogle/Paul Baron Award

This award is presented by the AIHA Nano and Advanced Materials Working Group to recognize excellence in a peer-reviewed article published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health (JOEH), which best advances knowledge and practice in our field. This award honors the work of Mr. Randy Ogle and Dr. Paul Baron who led the way in providing the management tools and the data that laid the groundwork for future generations of EHS professionals working in the field of Nano Technology and Advanced Materials. The award goes to Gavin H. West, Fatima I. Castaneda, Leonard G. Burrelli, Daniel Dresser, Michael R. Cooper, Sara B. Brooks and Bruce E. Lippy for the article Occupational Exposure Risk During Spraying of Biocidal Paint Containing Silver Nanoparticles published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene, volume 18, 2021, issue 6, pages 237-249, published online 14 May 2021.
