airmid healthgroup hosts a seminar on "Indoor Air Exposure in the Workplace and Legal Compliance" on behalf of IOSH

iosh logoThe Health Friendly Air division of airmid healthgroup are delighted to have been invited to host a seminar entitled “Indoor Air Exposure in the Workplace and Legal Compliance” on Thursday 19 September at our world leading facilities at Trinity Enterprise Campus in Dublin.  The event is being organised by the Ireland branch of IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety & Health), the largest health and safety membership organisation in the world.

Understanding the composition of pollutants is a first step in identifying the actions necessary to avoid and reduce the adverse impacts on health. The World Health Organisation estimates that one building in four has an indoor air quality problem. People spend a large part of their life indoors; therefore clean air in the indoor environment is an essential determinant of health and well-being.  According to WHO, public health awareness of indoor air pollution has lagged behind that of outdoor air pollution.

This seminar will set out how our specialist organisation of medical, occupational health & hygiene professionals, and scientists, audit and monitor the parameters in indoor air most likely to adversely impact on human health in the workplace.

To attend this free event, please contact IOSH directly at the IOSH Web Site

 

health friendly air™ to present at the Occupational Hygiene Society of Ireland 22nd Annual Conference

Dr. Bruce Mitchell will be presenting at the Occupational Hygiene Society of Ireland's 22nd Annual Conference, on Thursday 21st February in Limerick. Dr. Mitchell will be presenting health friendly air’s current findings on exposure to indoor air contaminants in the office environment. He will focus on the health implications from the build up of microbiological contaminants in office spaces, and will also look at the likely sources of these contaminants.

The Occupational Hygiene Society of Ireland (OHSI) was formed in 1986. Its membership comprises broad interest group including occupational hygienists, occupational physicians, scientists and occupational health and safety practitioners. The Society provides a consultative forum for the exchange of information and ideas for the control of occupational ill health. The Society is a member of the International Occupational Hygiene Association (IOHA) who's function is to promote and develop occupational hygiene throughout the world, promote the exchange of occupational hygiene information, to encourage the development of occupational hygiene and ensure a high ethical standard in occupational hygiene. The IOHA has members in 23 countries worldwide.

New Data to be Presented at the 2012 Annual ACAAI meeting

airmid healthgroup will be presenting data from a biomedical study on indoor air and the built environment at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology on November 8-13 in Anaheim, California.

The research is from an indoor aerobiology project involving environmental test chambers and field studies. The details of the research are press embargoed until after the meeting.

Members of the research team will be in attendance and look forward to discussing the area of research after the project has been presented.

airmid looks forward to playing an active role in the conference and bringing its aerobiology and biomedical contract research expertise to the benefit of all the college members.

airmid research team present data at AAAAI meeting in Orlando, Florida

Following a recent research and innovation project carried out in the state-of-the-art climate controlled chambers, members of the airmid research team will be travelling to the USA to present their findings.

The indoor air quality and health related project utilized airmid's allergen analysis facility, a world first with INAB accreditation, and will be presented at the American Academy of Asthma Allergy and Immunology (AAAAI) Annual Meeting 2012, March 2-6, in Orlando Florida.

The AAAAI is one of premiere medical meetings in the world to expand knowledge and skills in allergy, immunology and other issues that relate to indoor air quality.

The AAAAI Annual Meeting draws the allergy/immunology specialty's academic and clinical leaders to showcase new research and discuss other developments in allergy, asthma and immunologic diseases. The meeting is attended by more than 7,700 allergist/immunologists, related physicians, allied health professionals and industry representatives.

Presenting data at this prestigious American meeting follows on from the recent showcasing of another airmid project to the European Commissioner for Research and Innovation at the European Innovation Convention. Keeping a steady drum beat of publications, patents and R&D projects is fundamental to the airmid business.

"We are very excited to be showcasing the study data at a such a prestigious event and are looking forward to the thought provoking debate the data will stimulate" said Dr Angela Southey, one of the lead researchers on the project.

The exact nature of the exciting research is press embargoed until after it has been presented at the meeting.
