IH/os special interest group

The IH/OS Special Interest Group (SIG) is a network of personnel from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) community involved in occupational safety and health (S&H) issues. The IH/OS SIG provides the DOE community with tools for the development, enhancement, and/or implementation of programs and training designed to improve worker S&H. The SIG's activities are directed by the IH/OS SIG Steering Committee, an elected body from the DOE S&H community.

The IH/OS SIG Steering Committee also serves as the DOE Industrial Hygiene/Occupational Safety Topical Committee. The purpose of the Topical Committee is to provide a forum for, and facilitate interaction between, DOE and DOE contractor personnel to identify and resolve standards-related issues for the DOE Technical Standards Program Office.

The IH/OS SIG is sponsored by the DOE Office of Worker Safety and Health Policy (HS-10) and is managed by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE).

This Web site provides information about the SIG, their DOE Topical Committee activities, and S&H issues of interest to the DOE community.
