 Thanks to the AIHA-RMS and ASSP Members!

In 2019, the AIHA-RMS membership partnered with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to educate Colorado's youth on worker health and safety. The pilot project was funded by a grant from the Mountains and Plains Education and Resource Center and many AIHA-RMS and Colorado ASSP members contributed their time to the project.  A summary of the project was recently published in the Synergist.  If you are interested in presenting Safety Matters you can contact the AIHA Outreach committee and we can get you started!  [email protected]
