Who We Are
ASSP’s Industrial Hygiene Practice Specialty member community is the premier resource for ASSP members looking for technical knowledge and expertise related to industrial hygiene issues in the workplace. We provide a forum for you to discuss strategies and research that address the needs of industrial hygienists, as well as support to members who aspire to achieve a professional certification such as the CIH from the American Board of Industrial Hygiene.
What We Do
For ASSP members within the Industrial Hygiene Practice Specialty community, we provide the following:
- Networking opportunities via social media groups, conference calls and in-person meetings like the annual Professional Development Conference so you can connect with top industry professionals.
- Professional development opportunities, including industrial-hygiene-focused education that you can immediately put into practice, mentor relationships that facilitate sharing knowledge, and volunteer and leadership opportunities to build your skills and enhance your resume.
- Industrial hygiene-related content and information that you can also immediately implement, as well as share with employers and colleagues, to create safe, productive work environments.
Why It Matters
From asbestos to mold, and many contaminants in between, industrial hygienists are tasked with the important work of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, preventing and controlling these environmental factors or stresses in the workplace — helping to reduce sickness, impaired health and discomfort among workers. We strive to connect professionals in this ever-changing industry and provide the most relevant education and content so you can perform at the highest levels and advance safety at your organization.
