The OHSI are a learned society offering membership to those with an interest in the specialist area of occupational hygiene.
Our membership base is made up of occupational hygienists, occupational physicians, scientists and occupational health and safety professionals however our membership is open to any person with an interest in occupational hygiene and wishing to further the aims of the society.
The society aims to provide a discussion forum for those interested in occupational hygiene and encourage and facilitate greater contact amongst such people through the various events that we run and though our social media outlets.
Members of the society will also benefit from discounted rates to our various events throughout the year. OHSI members can also become members of the British Occupational Hygiene Society through our OHSI-BOHS partnership Scheme.
The topics for this year's Autumn event are biological monitoring and pesticide control. The programme will include a presentation on biological monitoring by Kate Jones (Health & Safety Laboratory, UK) and on implementation of the Sustainable Use Directive (SUD) for pesticides by Sheila Macken (Dept. Agriculture, Food and the Marine).
The event will also include the Annual Jack Eustace Lecture which will be presented by Kate Jones on isocyanate exposure control and biological monitoring. Kate and her co-author's published work on this research was recently awarded the Thomas Bedford Memorial Prize for the most outstanding paper published in the Annals of Occupational Hygiene.
