The New England Chapter of the American Industrial Hygiene Association or NEAIHA cordially invites all relevant parties to attend its annual Industrial Hygiene Conference and Vendor Exposition.  The event lasts all day and is filled with great handshakes and key information.

This year's meeting will be held at the Four Points by Sheraton in Norwood, Massachusetts which essentially means "Boston."   The event date is set for October 27th, 2010.

This annual event is an excellent way to stay in touch with current issues and network with other environmental health and safety professionals in the region.  This year's program features a panel of experts who will discuss industrial hygiene and occupational health from regulatory, legal, and medical perspectives.

NEAIHA is of course the New England chapter of AIHA.  AIHA primarily serves the industrial hygienist community in today's industry.  Industrial Hygiene is, according to AIHA documentation, both science and art.   It's "devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, prevention, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace which may cause sickness, impaired health and well being, or significant discomfort among workers or among citizens of the community."  In short, it's too many words!  Joking, of course.

The NEAIHA conference in Norwood, MA also includes a vendor exposition showcasing the latest in products and services for the industry. They're offering two contact hours in ethics, which meets the ABIH requirements for ethics training as required in this certification maintenance cycle. A continental breakfast and buffet lunch are included.  Executives such as Chris Nowak, Director at Actio Corporation, will attend.

 See you there.
