Last month, the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) announced that they will host the 11th IOHA International Scientific Conference. The event will take place in Washington, DC in October of 2018. In their announcement of the event, AIHA shared, “While AIHA will host IOHA 2018, both the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) and the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) have pledged their support to the meeting.”
The international conference takes place every two to three years with the next one occurring in London in 2015. The 2018 conference is expected to attract over 1,000 of the world’s leading occupational hygiene professionals and promises to be a unique opportunity for participants to learn and network with experts from all corners of the globe.
“ABIH congratulates the AIHA for their winning bid to host this international event,” said Lynn O’Donnell, CIH, Executive Director for the American Board of Industrial Hygiene. “ABIH has pledged our support for the 11th IOHA International Scientific Conference because this premier conference brings together the global community of industrial hygiene professionals who are dedicated to the profession and improving people’s lives. We look forward to providing our support and participation and encourage Certified Industrial Hygienists and the industrial hygiene community to plan on attending.”
