AIHA Promises Exciting Mix at Expo
The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) says it expects attendance at this year's annual American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition (AIHce) to number in the thousands. Currently in progress at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, AIHA has promised an exciting new mix of education, history, and entertainment that shouldn't be missed.
Among the hundreds of hands-on educational opportunities being offered this year, participants also have the opportunity to earn up to 6.5 CM points, attend 74 weekend professional development courses (PDCs), 40 educational tracks, including an early career and student track, 119 technical sessions, podium sessions, roundtables, environmental health and safety (EHS) crossover programs, technical tours, and poster sessions.
Now an annual tradition, the IH Mysteries Workshop taking place today from noon to 1:30 p.m. will present several case studies involving IH fieldwork. Working in groups, attendees are presented with all relevant data and circumstances associated with actual IH fieldwork case studies, minus the actual outcomes. Participants must cooperate to develop potential strategies and present their results. The case studies' actual outcomes are then presented to allow participants to gauge how close they came to finding the actual solution.
The CareerAdvantage Job Fair is continuing to run until tomorrow as a place where careers and candidates come together. Sponsored by the AIHA Career and Employment Services Committee and held in Hall C, the annual event gives job seekers access to thousands of job listings, allows them to have their resumes critiqued and posted, and hosts job-hunting workshop seminars, mock interviews, and on-site interviews with participating employers.
