Who We Are

The Association of Industrial Hygienists, Lagos Nigeria (AIHN) is an organization of occupational health and safety practitioners that provides expertise, guidance and information for the management of workplace health hazards in Nigeria.

The organization was founded in 2019 and was previously known as the ‘Nigeria Oil & Gas Industrial Hygiene Forum’. Consequently, the organization has evolved to become an umbrella body for all industrial hygienists who work in or provide industrial hygiene services to industries, organizations and institutions across Nigeria.

What is Industrial Hygiene?

According to the International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA), Industrial Hygiene (sometimes referred to as Occupational Hygiene) is the discipline of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating and controlling health hazards in the working environment with the objective of protecting worker health and well-being and safeguarding the community at large. Industrial hygienists recognize, assess, evaluate and control health risks to keep workers, and the communities surrounding workplaces, healthy and safe in line with regulatory requirements.
