The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) has announced that Dr. Stephen J. Reynolds, a Professor in the Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences, has been elected to the position of Vice Chair-Elect.
“ACGIH is the smaller of the two major scientific/professional societies in industrial hygiene in the United States, but is the international leader in establishing best practice guidelines such as the Threshold Limit Values for occupational exposures,” said Dr. Reynolds, who also is the Director of the High Plains Council for Agricultural Health and Safety. “This will be a tremendous opportunity for Colorado State University to continue to establish itself as a national leader in health and safety, and to help meet the societal needs in industrial hygiene that continue to change and grow.”
ACGIH members elected Dr. Reynolds to the position of Vice Chair-Elect. He will begin his four-year term on Jan. 1, 2008, and will serve as Vice Chair of ACGIH in 2009, Chair in 2010, and Past Chair in 2011. Dr. Reynolds joined ACGIH in 1995.
ACGIH is a member-based organization that advances occupational and environmental health. ACGIH is one of the industry's leading publications resources, with approximately 400 titles relative to occupational and environmental health and safety.
