AIHA Honors Two Yant Award Recipients for the First Time

The awardees will be honored at the 2016 AIHce conference

The AIHA has announced two recipients of the 2016 Yant Award, an award presented annually to an individual outside the United States to recognize contributions in industrial hygiene or allied fields, according to a news release.

This is the first time the AIHA will honor two individuals with the award. The recipients are Roger Alesbury, CFFOH, and Stephen R. Bailey, CFFOH. The two recipients jointly contributed to the training and development of occupational hygienists worldwide, particularly helping to grow professionals in developing economies. Alesbury and Bailey both previously held global responsibilities in senior management positions at multi-national corporations.

Alesbury and Bailey will be honored on Wednesday, May 25, during the second annual Mark of Excellence Awards Breakfast at the 2016 American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition in Baltimore, Md.

"Roger and Stephen have both made tremendous contributions to occupational hygiene on a global scale," said AIHA President Daniel H. Anna, PhD, CIH, CSP. "By creating a training framework that has reached 38 countries around the world they found a way to provide access to basic occupational hygiene training in areas that needed it most.  Their efforts are a significant step toward protecting worker health and advancing the occupational hygiene profession worldwide.  We are honored to recognize these individuals at AIHce 2016."
