Thanks to everyone who participated in our learning call on Monday!
We started our call with Bob Poll (firstname.lastname@example.org) who introduced us to the Engineering Industry Special Interest Group (SIG). He clarified for us that the SIG is NOT the same as the Hazard Prevention and Engineering Controls Committee. While the Committee deals with engineering controls the SIG focuses on supporting the health and safety of those working as engineers, environmental and construction consultants. He notes that many members have wealth of knowledge and the SIG provides a number of networking opportunities for those interested in joining. The groups meets regularly via teleconference and any one interested in joining is welcome to call in.
Next, we had Mike Ochs from the Stewardship and Sustainability Committee speak. He explained that the Stewardship and Sustainability Committee is one of the largest committees and is broken up in to three focus areas (or subcommittees): Stewardship, Environmental, and Products. They are an active award winning groups that sponsors about 8 PDC every conference. New members are encouraged to reach out to Thursa La (Tla@aiha.org) for contact information.
Finally, Aaron Rogers, CSP from Golder Associates gave the 45 minute lecture on “Studying for the CIH exam? What you need to know about IAQ/Mold.”
The presentation can be viewed for two weeks here.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at our next learning call is on October 13, 12pm CST – “Studying for the CIH exam? What you need to know about Noise.”!
