The AIOH has a long standing tradition of the Professional Development of members.
One of the ways that you can fast track your professional development is to apply for one of the AIOH Professional Development Awards.
The AIOH is very fortunate to have long standing supporters of the AIOH Professional Development Awards. Without their support we would not be able to provide such a tremendous opportunity to AIOH Members.
Whether you are starting out at the AIOH, mid career or looking at your next career move, then you should seriously consider applying for one of the many awards available.
PLEASE NOTE: the Airmet Professional Advancement Award and the Draeger Young Hygienist Award are reopened for 2021 with the hope that travel restrictions will be sorted out by early 2022. Problems may still arise with difficulties in ensuring international site visits, and uncertainty with travel insurance coverage. Travel for the 2021 awards may be delayed to future years.
Both Airmet and Draeger are committed to continuing these awards when it is safe to do so.
The Draeger Safety Pacific Young Hygienist Award is aimed at young hygienists and applicants must be less than 40 years of age, working full time as an occupational hygienist and a financial full or provisional member of the AIOH.
It comprises travel to the BOHS Conference in the UK and Draeger's research & development facility in Germany and other industry and government institutions in the UK or Europe.
The Air-Met Scientific Award is aimed at young hygienists and applicants must be working full time as an occupational hygienist and a financial full or provisional member of the AIOH.
The award provides a selected applicant with the opportunity for professional development through attendance at the American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition (AIHCE) and an invitation to travel, post-AIHCE, to SKC Inc in Pennsylvania and other industry and government institutions in USA and or Canada.
The Active Environmental Solutions Scholarship provides generous support for AIOH members to develop their academic credentials in occupational hygiene. The aim is to develop the academic standing of members of the Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists Inc. through postgraduate study in the contemporary academic system.
The scholarship will provide for attendance at an AIOH accredited post-graduate course majoring in occupational hygiene, or at an Australian based academic postgraduate course where the subject matter studied is principally occupational hygiene.
Sponsored by Industrial Scientific Australia Pty Ltd the AIOH Conference Package Award is designed to facilitate the attendance at the annual AIOH Conference of a "deserving" member of the Institute.
The 3M Best Paper Award is given to the paper judged by the awards and sponsorship committee to be the best occupational hygiene paper submitted for the annual AIOH conference.
Best AIOH Conference Electronic Poster Award is given to the electronic poster judged by the Awards Committee to be the best occupational hygiene electronic poster submitted for the AIOH Annual Conference.
