FAIRFAX, VA (January 15, 2010)—In response to the devastation in Haiti, the American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA) is compiling contact information
for industrial hygiene resources that relief agencies can refer to for advice and assistance. AIHA will also provide a list of publications that agencies involved in rescue efforts may find useful. The list of contacts and publications will be posted on the AIHA website, www.aiha.org.
In addition, AIHA will shortly make a donation to appropriate relief agencies. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recommends that individuals who wish to help should make monetary contributions to relief organizations through www.interaction.org. InterAction is a coalition of U.S.-based nongovernmental organizations focused on the world’s poor.
Individuals interested in offering technical assistance or donating supplies should register at www.cidi.org, the website of the Center for International Disaster Information.
