AIHA Mission

Empowering those who apply scientific knowledge to protect all workers from occupational hazards.

AIHA Vision

A world where all workers are healthy and safe.

​​

Founded in 1939, AIHA is a community of the best and brightest people in industrial hygiene and occupational and environmental health and safety around the world. ​As a nonprofit organization, AIHA is devoted to achieving and maintaining the highest professional standards for its members.

The 2019 membership classifications have been redefined to make membership criteria more inclusive and to appeal to a broader base of potential members. Amendments to AIHA’s bylaws must be approved by two-thirds of voting members. The changes to membership categories passed by a vote of 87 percent to 13 percent.​

AIHA Membership Dues

AIHA dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes but may be partially deductible as a business expense. AIHA estimates that 6% of your dues are not deductible because of AIHA's lobbying activities on behalf of its members. AIHF and AGF are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Contributions to either may be tax deductible. Consult your tax advisor.​

Please note... membership dues are not refundable.
