Promoting the application of occupational hygiene principles to improve and maintain a safe and healthy working environment for all. Representing the profession nationally and internationally.

What is Occupational Hygiene Occupational Hygiene is generally defined as the art and science dedicated to the Anticipation, Recognition, Evaluation, Communication and Control of environmental stressors in, or arising from, the work place that may result in injury, illness, impairment, or affect the well being of workers and members of the community.
