— ISRP & IOHA sign Memorandum of Understanding

IOHA logo

I'm glad to announce that the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the ISRP and the International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA) was formally signed at IOHA2015 earlier today (29th April 2015).

Jimmy Perkins and I signed the MoU and briefly talked about how we can work together to make a real difference to those who are exposed to inhalation hazards.

This is a great opportunity for the ISRP and I look forward to seeing the ISRP working with IOHA and its members around the world.

More details will be published shortly.

— Mike Clayton contributes to the protection debate

Mike Clayton (President of the ISRP and Technical Team Leader of the PPE Team, Engineering and Personal Safety Unit, Health and Safety Laboratory, Buxton, England) has written an article on the well-known SHP (Safety & Health Practitioner) blog.


Why can't we get respiratory protection right?

In a recent blog HSL’s John Saunders talked about the role of local exhaust ventilation (LEV) in protecting workers’ health. This blog continues the theme of reducing inhalation exposure with the use of respiratory protection equipment (RPE).
