The Northern California Section (NCS) of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) has undertaken an initiative, the Developing World Outreach Initiative (DWOI), to address the lack of adequate industrial hygiene resources for workers and workplace health and safety professionals in developing countries. In March 2006, a work group was formed to connect the technical resources within AIHA-NCS with those who need it in the developing world. We are looking for partners, both individuals and organizations, which have similar visions to improve health and safety in the developing world.
