​World Accr​​editation Day

June 9 marks World Accreditation Day 2018. Established by the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and the International Accreditation Forum, World Accreditation Day is celebrated each year to raise awareness of the importance of accreditation activities. This year, the focus of World Accreditation Day will be on the role that accreditation plays in delivering a safer world. Worker safety is what AIHA had in mind when it established its Industrial Hygiene Laboratory Accreditation Program in 1974 — a program for laboratories analyzing samples to evaluate workplace exposure to chemical hazards.​

Stay tuned for more information on how AIHA LAP will celebrate its IHLAP labs during World Accreditation Day 2018.​
