What is a Local Section?
Local section is the term used by AIHA to designate regional chapters. AIHA, t
he premier occupational health and safety association, has over 60 local sections throughout the United States, and 6 international sections. Since each region may hav
e their own special concerns, the activities of one local section may vary from another. However, the purpose of each local section remains the same:
- Protect the health and safety of workers and the community
- Increase knowledge of industrial hygiene and occupational health and safety in a specific region
- Promote the profession and cooperate with government, industrial, educational, and other professional bodies
