New AIHA Website Helps Employers Create Healthier Workplace

New AIHA Website Helps Employers Create Healthier Workplace

March 2, 2023
The new website provides industry-specific content for employers in chemical manufacturing, construction and transportation industries.

Employers can always use more resources to keep employees healthy. And in that vein, the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) has launched a new website, Healthier Workplaces.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of protecting workers – across a spectrum of industries – to not only keep them healthy on the job, but also to help keep the country up and running during a time of tremendous uncertainty,” explained Lawrence D. Sloan, CEO of AIHA.

The website provides free resources for employers and employees to safeguard worker health and well-being, including keeping workplaces safe from infectious disease outbreaks and pandemics.

The Healthier Workplaces website includes three sections of resources:

  • Consumer Health and Safety Resources – content-specific resources on topics including indoor air quality, disaster preparedness and response, and young worker safety training;
  • Workplace Resources – two distinct resource hubs for employers and employees offering guidance documents/expert resources by industry and job role;
  • Video Podcast Series – timely, informative topics on practical consumer and environmental health, and safety issues with new episodes dropping the first and third Wednesday of each month.

The new website also encompasses a Worker Health and Safety section, featuring industry-specific content for employers in chemical manufacturing, construction, first responders, and transportation (freight railway and trucking) industries. Resources include checklists, infographics, and guidance documents to assist employers in protecting their employees’ health.

In addition to the employer- and consumer-based resources, the Healthier Workplaces website includes a Consultants Listing to help employers and consumers find OEHS professionals in their area.
