Welcome to The Emerging Hygienist Group! The EHG is a space for hygienists to network, knowledge share and explore the pathways to becoming a COH. We encourage members to use this space to post and share about all things occupational hygiene. Stay tuned for networking and information sessions

Want to keep up to date with research but don’t have the time to read everything?


Come to the EHG Journal Club we read and share research to make learning more efficient and fun!


“What do I need to do?”

1. Find a journal article. Something new and innovative, or a classic you love!
2. Read it well.
3. Prepare a summary (3-5 mins)
4. Have the paper’s reference ready.

Your summary can be in any form you like. Ideally it will provide a non-technical overview of the findings (remember, not everyone shares your area of expertise) and intriguing enough to get people to read the original paper.
