The Occupational Hygiene Training Association (OHTA) is a not-for-profit organisation of volunteers. We aim to reduce the global burden of ill health from the work environment by promoting better standards of occupational hygiene practice around the world.
OHTA develops training materials and make them freely 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 is supported by many national occupational hygiene organisations and the International Occupational Hygiene Association.
We operate with a few basic ground rules: we try to be
We believe that adhering to these operating principles will help to grow the global occupational hygiene community and encourage consensus standards.
Support and sponsorship
OHTA has no paid staff. All time and effort is provided by volunteers and supporters. Operating costs are minimal but essential services are funded through sponsors who share the aims of OHTA.
OHTA partners with many other organizations to enable delivery of the international training and qualifications system. We are pleased to collaborate with Workplace Health Without Borders to help bring occupational hygiene training to developing countries.
