AIHA to Present 28th Annual Smyth Award

The American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA) recently announced the 2009 recipient of the Henry F. Smyth Jr. Award. John R. Mulhausen, Ph.D., CIH, CSP, will be recognized at the 2009 Professional Conference on Industrial Hygiene (PCIH) being held Oct. 3-6 in Vancouver, Canada. AIHA's Academy of Industrial Hygiene hosts the conference.

"It is a great honor to present this award to Dr. Mulhausen on behalf of the Academy," said Jaswant Singh, Ph.D., CIH, Academy president. "His dedication to promoting the industrial hygiene profession through his research and many achievements, especially in the area of exposure assessment strategies and statistics, has earned great respect from his peers."

Mulhausen, an AIHA Fellow, is the Director of Corporate Safety and Industrial hygiene at 3M. He received his BA in chemistry from St. Olaf College followed by an MS and a Ph.D. in environmental health from the University of Minnesota. Mulhausen is also an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health.

Mulhausen is a member of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Board of Scientific Counselors; the Midwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety Advisory Board; the University of Minnesota Industrial Hygiene Advisory Forum; the AIHA Exposure Assessment Strategies Committee; the Delta Omega Honorary Public Health Society; and the AIHA Upper Midwest Section. He was the 2002 recipient of the AIHA Edward J. Baier Technical Achievement Award.

"I am humbled by this honor," Mulhausen said. "We all rely on collaborations with current partners and the previous work of those that have contributed before us, but I am particularly blessed to be surrounded by people that continually teach me, challenge me, and support me--at home, at 3M, at the University of Minnesota, and at AIHA. It has been, and continues to be, a wonderful, rich, and rewarding adventure."

The Academy established the Henry F. Smyth Jr. Award in 1981 and presents it to an individual who has recognized the needs of the industrial hygiene profession and made major contributions, thereby contributing to the improvement of the public's welfare. Henry F. Smyth Jr. was a dedicated teacher and productive researcher whose projects enhanced the profession.
