AIHA Launches New Website with Free Resources for Hazard Protection

Resources are available for employers, employees and consumers.

Late last week, The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) published a new website to help people protect themselves from hazards.

The website, Healthier Workplaces, offers free resources geared toward employers, employees and consumers on hazards they may face both at a worksite and home, according to a news release.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of protecting workers—across a spectrum of industries—to not only keep them healthy on the job, but also to help keep the country up and running during a time of tremendous uncertainty,” said Lawrence D. Sloan, CEO of AIHA.

These resources are divided into three sections.

Under the Consumer Health and Safety Resources, users can find detailed information on nine topics, including air quality, hearing, mold and disaster.

The Workplace Resources webpage contains information on various industries. Under the section for employers, the highlighted industries include:

Under the employee section, users can read about:

The third section, called the Video Podcast Series, features episodes of the AIHA Healthier Workplaces Show. Hosted by Bob Krell, the show publishes new episodes twice per month.

In addition, the website contains information on specific industries and a search for local specialists and professionals.

“Our new Healthier Workplaces website is a one-stop shop for employers and consumers, and features a broad array of content tailored to their specific health and safety needs. It offers something for everyone—from the employer looking to enlist the support of an OEHS professional to conduct a thorough risk assessment, to the homeowner faced with the challenges of rebuilding due to a natural disaster such as a wildfire or hurricane,” Sloan continued.
