AIHA Offering Risk Management TeleWeb on Aug. 19

The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) will host "What Industrial Hygienists Should Know About Risk Management and Insurance," an intermediate TeleWeb Virtual Seminar on Aug. 19 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.

In recent years, many industrial hygiene programs have been involved in organizational re-alignments, shifting from stand-alone units to assimilation into comprehensive environmental health and safety programs, according to AIHA. Such shifts compelled individuals to expand their professional knowledge base to better understand the roles of their new organizational colleagues. But the trend of organizational transformation has not stopped.

This course will provide an overview of the risk management and insurance profession from the health and safety program perspective, specifically addressing:

<>
  • How an organization's loss exposures are identified and analyzed
  • How risk management alternatives are evaluated
  • How the most desirable option is selected
  • The implementation of selected risk management techniques
  • The monitoring of effectiveness
    • The featured speaker is Robert Emery, DrPH, CIH, CHP, CSP, RBP, CHMM, CPP, ARM. Emery is the assistant vice president for Safety, Health, Environment and Risk Management for The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and associate professor of Occupational Health at the University of Texas School of Public Health. He has over 25 years of experience in health and safety and holds masters degrees in health physics and environmental sciences, and a doctorate in occupational health. Emery is unique in that he possesses national board certification and registration in all of the main areas of health and safety.

      Attendees will be provided with tools to enable them to:

      • Understand how an organization’s universe of loss exposures are identified and analyzed
      • Understand how risk management alternatives are evaluated
      • Determine how the most desirable options are selected
      • Assist in the implementation of selected risk management techniques, and assist in the monitoring of program effectiveness.
