American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) honored two ASSP members with its Fellow designation: Steven E. Lacey, Ph.D., CSP, CIH, FAIHA, and David C. Roskelley, M.S.P.H., CSP, CIH, FAIHA. This designation recognizes individuals for contributions to the profession. Fellows are nominated by a local section, special interest group, committee or other formal AIHA entity.
"The AIHA Fellow designation recognizes people who have made significant contributions to AIHA and the profession of industrial hygiene over the course of their careers," says AIHA’s Deborah Nelson. "The 2019 Fellows have demonstrated exemplary leadership and made a significant impact in moving AIHA's mission forward. Being nominated and selected for a Fellow designation is truly an accomplishment that is worth celebrating."
Lacey is a professor and chair of the environmental health science department at Indiana University. He is a professional member of ASSP’s Central Indiana Chapter and a member of the Society’s Academics Practice Specialty.
"It is a great honor to be among the 12 individuals named AIHA Fellow in 2019,” says Roskelley. “I love the field and have always felt a desire to volunteer and give back to the profession. Our profession is only as strong as our members.”
AIHA also announced the recipients of the 2019 Distinguished Service to AIHA award, which is presented to individuals who have advanced industrial hygiene through unique technical contributions to the aims and goals of AIHA, leadership in the industrial hygiene profession, and influence on public policy or social reform, or public and community service. The recipient of this award is ASSP member Thomas P. Fuller, Sc.D., M.S.P.H., M.B.A., CSP, CIH. Fuller is an associate professor at Illinois State University, and is a professional member of ASSP’s Central Illinois Chapter and our Academics Practice Specialty.
“The greatest accomplishments of AIHA are achieved through the dedication of members who volunteer their time and energy for committees, boards, publications and projects,” says Fuller. “The inherent inclusiveness of the organization affords opportunities for all members, at any level in their careers, to get involved. Over the past several years it has been my privilege to serve the AIHA on several committees and special projects. It is an honor to currently serve as the AIHA representative to the board of the International Occupational Hygiene Association and as the past chair of the International Affairs Committee. Receiving this award is a true honor and greatly appreciated.”
