Who is OHTA?
The Occupational Hygiene Association (OHTA) began as an international collaboration amongst dedicated occupational hygienists from several nations who wanted people from around the world to enjoy the benefits of a healthy working environment.

We develop training materials and make them readily available for use by students and training providers. We also promote an international qualifications framework so that all hygienists are trained to a consistent, high standard, recognized in all participating countries.
OHTA operates with a few basic ground rules. Our aims are to be:
We believe that adhering to these operating principles will help to grow the global occupational hygiene community and encourage consensus standards.
