Certified Industrial Hygienists Play Key Role in Leadership Positions
The American Board of Industrial Hygiene’s CIH program helps to distinguish industrial hygiene professionals for leadership positions.
The Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) program has been the premier occupational hygiene certification for more than 50 years. During this time it has gained both national and international recognition as the gold standard within the profession.
The CIH program has always set high standards so that only the best occupational hygienists achieve the distinguished certification. The requirements for education, experience and examination are rigorous and some of the most demanding in the industry.
For the approximately 7,000 current CIHs across the globe, certification has provided increased professional credibility, personal satisfaction and a competitive edge for job placement and advancement which has helped propel CIHs into leadership positions. This fact is easily recognized when looking at leadership positions in key organizations associated with the industrial hygiene profession. The Presidents of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), American Conference of Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH), Academy of Industrial Hygiene and the Chair of the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) are all well known CIHs. CIHs in leadership positions can also be found in many other professional associations dealing with technical-specific subject matter.
“Not only can CIHs be found leading many of the top professional associations, but many CIHs are also in key leadership positions in private industry, academic environments and in government agencies,” reported Tracy Parsons, CIH, Administrative Program Manager at ABIH. “There is no more powerful way to show one’s professionalism in the industrial hygiene profession than by earning the CIH certification. For those looking to become leaders and to distinguish their knowledge and capabilities by earning the CIH designation, ABIH has developed a video that can be found at the ABIH website that provides an overview of why so many people aspire to become a CIH.”
