What is AIHA?
The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) is a 501c6 non-profit organization founded in 1939 to ensure that occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) hazards are anticipated and eliminated or controlled in workplaces and community settings.
With more than 8,500 members across the U.S., AIHA provides comprehensive educational programs and resources to help OEHS professionals maintain the highest professional and competency standards.

Give high school and college students an introduction to the benefits of pursuing an OEHS career
Spread awareness of the NIOSH Education and Research Centers (ERCs) that offer free STEM college tuition and ABET-Accredited Industrial Hygiene (IH) programs
