Australian Government Recognizes IH MOD

Posted August 2, 2012

AIHA’s IH MOD program was recently named as a reliable resource to calculate airborne chemical concentrations in Safe Work Australia’s “Guidance on the Interpretation of Workplace Exposure Standards for Airborne Contaminants,” a government guidance document. IH MOD is discussed on page 8.

IH MOD is a flexible Microsoft Excel spreadsheet that implements many basic modeling and statistical analysis algorithms to help industrial hygienists use modeling and statistical analysis in exposure assessments. IH MOD is also a supplement to Mathematical Models for Estimating Occupational Exposure to Chemicals, second edition.

Originally developed by AIHA members Daniel Drolet and Tom Armstrong, IH MOD is available in English, French and German. Download IH MOD for free on the AIHA website.
