AIHA to Present Webcast on Professional Ethics in IH Practice

The American Industrial Hygiene Association says it is mindful that the ever-increasing competitive pressure and the growing technical complexity within the IH profession sometimes conspire to blur the lines of right versus wrong and pose a substantial challenge to the IH practitioner dedicated to doing the right thing.

The recent array of scandal and wrongdoing in the financial sector and elsewhere has resulted in outrage and the erosion of public trust--a condition that also raises the IH community's collective stake in fostering ethical behavior among its practitioners. Because the consequences of unethical behavior and decision making pose great reputational risk to the individual and to the organizations AIHA represents, the association is planning to host a Teleweb course--"Professional Ethics: Doing What Is Right in the Practice of Industrial Hygiene"--on Aug. 4 from 2-4:30 p.m. ET.

Through this Teleweb the practitioner will gain an understanding of ethical behavior and the factors that influence it, AIHA says. A panel of certified industrial hygienists will zero in on the meaning of doing what is right through discourse around real dilemmas that routinely confront IH practitioners. On the more mechanical side, the course also will review recent changes in the ABIH Code of Ethics and consider tools and methodologies to resolve ethical dilemmas.

The course presenters will include Glenn J. Barbi, CIH, of Becton Dickinson & Co.; Jeff V. Trhockmorton, CIH, of the University of Utah; David C. Roskelley, MSPH, CIH, CSP, of R&R Environmental Inc.; Alan J. Leibowitz, CIH, CSP, of the ITT Corp.; and Thomas C. Ouimet, MPH, MBA, CIH, CSP, of OEHS2.

AIHA says participants who complete the course will be better able to:

  • Gain an appreciation of the relevance and critical nature of ethical behavior in today’s world.
  • Identify ethical dilemmas and why they are difficult.
  • Analyze scenarios to understand ethical challenges and use tools and methodologies to make ethical choices.

There are no prerequisites for the course, but, pending ABIH approval, CEUs, COCs, and CM points will be awarded. The deadline for early registration is July 24. For more information and registration, call (888) 410-4581 or go online to www.aiha.org (type in "professional ethics" in the Search box).

Every site registered will receive materials that may be duplicated for each participant. Handout materials will be available for a limited time only after the TeleWeb, which will be recorded. Participants unable to attend the live event may also purchase an archived CD at a special discounted price prior to the TeleWeb. These specially discounted CD orders must be placed in advance of the TeleWeb. Order online above or by phone at (703) 846-0749, allowing two to four weeks for the CD delivery post Teleweb or after your purchase.
