AIHA, AIH, ACGIH®, ABIH Revise Shared Code of Ethics

The American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) has decided to develop a new, enforceable Code of Ethics for all ABIH-certified professionals, applicants, and examinees, which will be complemented by a set of principles created by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), AIHA's Academy of Industrial Hygiene (AIH), and ACGIH®.

AIHA says the Member Ethical Principles document was developed in cooperation with ABIH and is based on the same concepts as its newly approved and enforceable Code of Ethics (available at www.abih.org/members/documents.html#ethicscode); however, the joint principles representing shared member ethical principles and are not enforceable.

The four societies have jointly shared a Code of Ethics since the mid-1980s. In 1995, they worked together to update the Code of Ethics. In 1996, the Joint Industrial Hygiene Ethics Education Committee (JIHEEC) was formed with representatives from each of the societies. The mission of JIHEEC is one of education, not enforcement. JIHEEC has served the profession by bringing attention to ethical dilemmas facing industrial hygiene, while also serving as a sounding board for ethical challenges facing the profession.
