On May 17, 2019, the American Board of Industrial Hygiene® (ABIH®) announced that it had changed its name to the Board for Global EHS Credentialing® (BGC®) to more accurately reflect our new organizational structure and wider range of credentials and designations for improving public and environmental protection.
American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) was formed in 1939 and is a non-profit organization incorporated in Illinois.
Founded in 1876 and chartered by the U.S. Congress, we are one of the world’s largest scientific organizations with membership of over 151,000 in 140 countries. Our mission is to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people. Our vision is to improve people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry.
The Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP), a not-for-profit corporation headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, has been setting and certifying the technical competency criteria for safety, health, and environmental (SH&E) practitioners since 1969.
Since its inception, The Society for Occupational and Environmental Health (SOEH) has been an influential voice in the field. The Society continues to play a unique, integrating role by bringing together professionals in government, industry, labor, and academia.
AIHA is the association for scientists and professionals committed to preserving and ensuring occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) in the workplace and community.
The Northern California Section of AIHA (AIHA-NCS) was conceived and created between June and August, 1947, as the result of dedicated efforts by a group of persons in the Occupational and Public Health sciences.
