Technical tours offer attendees the opportunity to go “behind the scenes” to look at OEHS issues in the daily operation of a facility or program. These tours are led by an industrial hygienist or other safety professional. Tours are considered part of the education program, and CM points are awarded in the same manner as if a registrant were attending a session. We offer a limited number of tours during AIHce EXP, which defines the facilities selected as those featuring “best practice” OEHS standards.
All technical tours, unless otherwise noted are $60 (advance rate when purchased by 3/19/2023) and $75 (after 3/19/2023).
