Team from University of Michigan Wins Student Development Challenge

Posted December 20, 2017

The AIHA Hazard Prevention and Engineering Controls Committee and Workplace Health Without Borders-US recently co-sponsored a workplace contaminant controls development challenge for students to promote worker health and safety in developing countries. The inaugural challenge focused on reducing silica exposures arising from work with agate stones. The team from the University of Michigan Industrial Hygiene Program—including Emily Armstrong, Courtney Crawford, Abilene Emerson, Andrea Guytingco, Sophia Ridl, and Steven Vanderlaske—won the challenge with a proposal using a cardboard enclosure, fan, and impact plate. Congratulations to the University of Michigan team and their advisor, Professor Zellers!
