AIHA Connect 2024 is designed to support your essential work: keeping our workplaces and communities healthy and safe. Have you considered what you'll gain from attending? With your eyes on the prize, nothing can stop your success.
The heart of the 2024 conference is the education sessions, hour-long presentations given by experts in IH/OEHS topics.
The variety of educational events at AIHA Connect gives you opportunities to keep up with developments in your professional area of expertise, introduce yourself to new issues arising in the changing global workplace, and learn about IH/OEHS topics outside your primary focus. Consider attending a few sessions on topics you know less about, which may provide context for issues you deal with daily or expose you to new solutions to current challenges you may be facing.
Professional development courses (PDCs), which occur in the days before and after the conference, afford even more learning opportunities. Most PDCs also teach IH/OEHS topics. A few provide instruction on human skills (aka soft skills), such as leadership, communication, and conflict management, which may help you be a more effective IH/OEHS professional.
This premier OEHS conference is also a chance to prepare for CIH recertification. This year, conference participants can achieve up to 17 certification maintenance hours (with more pending) throughout the three days, with proof of participation required to receive credit.
Suppose you miss a session and have a full registration (live or virtual). In that case, you'll have access to AIHA Connect OnDemand, which provides recordings of most AIHA Connect sessions and is available in the weeks following the conference. OnDemand sessions come included with full registration and offer additional CM credits.
Aside from education, AIHA Connect 2024 will also offer attendees a chance to connect with other IH/OEHS professionals. Meeting your peers may help you find job or research opportunities, increase your visibility in the profession, build confidence, and gather information about how your field works, such as what employers look for or what skills are essential in which focus areas.
