Lansing, MI, May 6th, 2013 -- Later this month, industrial hygiene professionals from across the globe will converge in Montreal to attend the 2013 American Industrial Hygiene Conference & Exposition (AIHce). Thousands of industrial hygiene and safety professionals will take part in the conference’s events, PDCs and networking opportunities.
The American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) is proud to be an active supporter, exhibitor and participant in this year’s conference. Since 1960, ABIH, a not-for-profit corporation, has been the world's largest, premier organization for certifying professionals in the practice of industrial hygiene. Thousands of attending industrial hygiene professionals have earned the prestigious Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) certification administered by ABIH.
For ABIH Diplomates and Applicants, this is an ideal time to interact with their peers, learn about the CIH credential, earn CM credits for participation in the AIHce and PDCs, and meet with the staff of the ABIH. There are several opportunities targeted to ABIH Applicants and Diplomates.
