AIHA's Public Policy Agenda is built on four goals:

  1. Increase the number of OEHS professionals in the United States.
  2. Increase the knowledge and skills of OEHS professionals in the US.
  3. Increase public awareness of the roles and value of OEHS professionals in the US
  4. Increase protections for workers in the US from the risk of OEHS hazards.

The Public Policy Agenda provides an analysis of each issue, examining its root causes and recommending actions to help protect workers and their communities.
