On July 18 and 19, 2016 at the AIHA offices in Falls Church, VA, this unprecedented Summit discussed, among many other questions, the following:
- What emerging sensing technologies are relevant to industrial hygiene?
- What if you had access to validated direct read instrumentation, specific to the needs of the industrial hygienist, which incorporated the latest sensing technologies?
- What improvements to detection, monitoring, prediction – and worker health – might be possible by 2021?
- What changes in hazard sensing - performance, regulation, access, and education - are needed to make that 2021 vision a reality?
A summary report of these answers can be found with the AIHA Guideline Foundation.
