President's Corner

The last few weeks I have had the opportunity to meet some amazing professionals in the Safety and Industrial Hygiene field that have really inspired young professionals like myself to become more engaged and to continue learning. I have learned new concepts around human performance, predictive analytics, occupational dog bite safety and energy-based hazard recognition that have inspired me to become a better professional within my industry. I encourage all of you for the month of June and July to continue to learn and grow in the Safety/IH field no matter how many years you have dedicated.  We are so fortunate to work in a field that is constantly evolving! 

Learning Opportunities 
June 13th:The local Saint Louis AIHA chapter will have Megan Sexton from Republic Services present on "Current Issues in the Recycling". 

June 19th:WISH is hosting a Lunch & Learn Event at the Saint Louis Zoo. Mark Woodward from MEM (Missouri Employers Mutual) will be presenting on "Presentation Skills".

I would like to recognize a few of our AIHA members who have been dedicating their time at the Stanley Cup Finals!! Thank you Rick Shoaf, Don Ridenhower, Mike Siegal for protecting the Blues Fans!!


The AIHA Saint Louis Chapter would like to host a round table discussion where we can give local IH and Safety professionals an opportunity to ask questions and find solutions to hazards they may be dealing with in the work place or their community. If you have topics that you would like discussed please email them to
Have a wonderful June!
