Lansing, MI, December 10th, 2012 -- Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH) provide important occupational health and safety services to people across the globe. Many industries rely on their knowledge to ensure that workers are not exposed to potentially harmful situations. Many CIHs also work as consultants and are able to offer their expertise not only to industry, but also directly to the public as well.
CIHs are called upon to offer their expertise on a wide range of potential chemical, physical, biological, and ergonomic stressors. Their ability to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and control these hazards makes their services highly sought after by individuals, industry, institutions, government agencies, and the public.
The American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) provides an easy way for people to locate a CIH in their area. ABIH has developed a Public Roster search function that can be found at http://www.ABIH.org.
“All CIHs are listed in our public roster” reported Tracy Parsons, CIH, Administrative Program Manager at ABIH. “Many CIHs, especially those in consulting roles, have also chosen to provide their professional contact information as well. This resource allows our CIHs to be easily accessible to people and organizations that require their expertise. ABIH is pleased to offer this service. It is a valuable benefit to Industrial Hygienists who have reached a key professional milestone by obtaining the CIH certification.”
ABIH has released a video about the benefits to Industrial Hygienists of the CIH program that can be viewed at:
