Go Behind the Scenes in Philadelphia

How often do you get the opportunity to go “behind the scenes” to look at OEHS issues in the daily operation of a facility or program? The learning experiences at AIHce are designed to expand your expertise, explore new topics and ideas, and strengthen your career. Which is why, in addition to our sessions and PDCs, we offer technical tours to AIHce attendees as an educational experience.

Are you focused on exposure risk to those in the medical community? Are you filling up your AIHce agenda with healthcare focused sessions? Then you won’t want to miss our technical tour of the Christiana Hospital in Philadelphia. The tour will include visits to Christiana Care's state-of-the-art safe patient handling training facility, the Textiles Department, where 11 million pounds of laundry are processed per year, a co-generation power plant that generates electricity for the hospital, and the patient decontamination facilities.

Are you looking to the future with a focus in nanotechnology? Join us for a tour of the Singh Center for Nanotechnology, which is focused on four major research facilities, all featuring state-of-the-art equipment for nanoscale characterization, measurement, and fabrication. The tour of the Center will focus on the health and safety features of each facility, including storage, dispensing, and disposal of highly toxic chemicals and gases.

Are you curious about the safety procedures in the food and beverage industries? We’ve got a special treat for you. One of our technical tours this year will be taking place at the brand new Yards Brewing Company in Philadelphia. Participants will get an overview of how the brewery is integrating safety into their workplace culture.

Led by an industrial hygienists and other safety professionals, these technical tours are considered part of the education program, and CM points are awarded in the same manner as if a registrant were attending a session.

You can learn about all of the technical tours being offered during AIHce EXP 2018 in Philadelphia on our website. Don’t wait too long - spaces are limited for each technical tour!
