Share Article

Industrial Hygienists will gain valuable knowledge on how to demonstrate their value within their organizations by participating in this special roundtable at AIHce 2011. The role of computer applications for managing Industrial Hygiene and OHS data will be one of several topics evaluated.

The important contributions of Industrial Hygiene professionals can fly under management’s radar. I hope that industrial hygienists will walk away from this session empowered and confident that they can prove their worth within any organization.

Monica Melkonian, a Medgate Industrial Hygiene expert and Senior Client Service Consultant has arranged a roundtable session at the 2011 American Industrial Hygiene Association Conference and Exposition (AIHce). The Roundtable, titled “Using Computer Applications to Demonstrate the IH Business Case as Part of the Value Strategy,” will take place on Wednesday, May 18 from 1pm-3:30pm.

Industrial hygienists – also known as Occupational Hygienists - play a critical role within organizations to ensure the health and safety of workers and the general public. Many times it can be difficult to quantify for management the true value hygienists provide to an organization. Monica and her peers will present success stories and useful tips to help prove the value of industrial hygiene through computer applications.

“I am pleased to have arranged and be participating in this important roundtable at this year’s AIHce,” says Ms. Melkonian. “Industrial Hygienists are an invaluable asset to promoting health and safety within an organization. Their important contributions and skill set can fly under management’s radar, which is why we are equipping them with a toolset that will help showcase their value. My presentation specifically speaks to how computer applications such as industrial hygiene software can help them manage and present their data in a meaningful way. Above all, I hope that industrial hygienists will walk away empowered and confident that they can prove their worth within any organization”
