AIHA was formed in 1939 and is accredited by ANSI to create standards. Amongst others AIHA has created the ANSI/AIHA Z88 standard for respirator fit test methods. AIHA offers a number of educational resources, and publishes a monthly magazine The Synergist as well as the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene. President is Donald Hart..
