What is "I Am IH"?

Industrial Hygiene (IH) is a science and art 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, IHs are scientists and engineers committed to protecting the health and safety of people where they work. They are the "invisible heroes" who make sure our friends, acquaintances, and loved ones come home safe every day.

Still don't get it? That's okay! Take a minute and hear from some of our members what being an IH is all about.
