Way to Network with Other OEHS Professionals in the Area

Membership in the Ohio Valley local section does more than just keep you informed—it provides you with a total spectrum of activities that enhance your professional growth, while promoting the occupational health and safety field.

 

What is a Local Section?

Local section is the term used by AIHA to designate regional chapters.  AIHA, the premier occupational health and safety association, has over 60 local sections throughout the United States, and 6 international sections.  Since each region may have their own special concerns, the activities of one local section may vary from another.  However, the purpose of each local section remains the same:

  • Protect the health and safety of workers and the community

  • Increase knowledge of industrial hygiene and occupational health and safety in a specific region

  • Promote the profession and cooperate with government, industrial, educational, and other professional bodies

  • Share a concern about the health of workers worldwide as well as the special concerns of your regional area
