More than 305 IH, EHS Professionals Expected at PCIH 2008

Industrial hygienists and environmental health and safety professionals will gather in Tampa, Fla., for the Professional Conference on Industrial Hygiene (PCIH), November 8–11. PCIH will host more than 350 colleagues who want to stay current with trends, find solutions to everyday issues, and network with peers.

Professional development courses (PDCs), general sessions, workshops, and small group discussions are designed to equip attendees with the information needed to excel. Attendees can earn up to 6 CM points.

"This year's PCIH should provide an excellent experience for all who attend," said Academy President Brad T. Garber, Ph.D., CIH, DABT, CSP. "In depth coverage of topics such as the value of industrial hygiene study and the effects of globalization on professional practice will give attendees an opportunity to learn more about our profession’s future in a rapidly changing world."

Highlights planned for the 2008 conference include:

  • A pre-conference risk assessment symposium, Nov. 6–7, that will present a group of integrated approaches reinforced with exercises, so that students can gain a new perspective on the bedrock model of anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control.
  • Interactive breakfast and luncheon discussions on the new value of the profession study, heat stress, social responsibility, and more.
  • The ability to customize your time at PCIH by choosing from various Solutions Workshops, Thinkshops, and Concurrent Sessions.
  • Opening Session: American Imports, Asian Deaths, and the General Session: Genuine Worker Participation - An Indispensable Key to Effective Global EHS.
  • A free technical tour of the Tampa Port Authority (limited space available).
  • Opportunities to network at a welcome reception in the expo, Meet and Greet Lounge, and various planned social events.

Expo hours are 8 a.m.–1 p.m. and 5:30–6:30 p.m. on Nov. 10, and 8–11 a.m. on Nov. 11. PCIH is sponsored by the American Industrial Hygiene Association’s (AIHA) Academy of Industrial Hygiene, a group dedicated to advancing the industrial hygiene profession by raising the level of competence of industrial hygienists.
