The AIOH Canary – It Could be Yours!

Posted on Updated on

AIOH Canary

Have you always wanted to go to an AIOH Conference, but could never quite get there? Or perhaps you already know how awesome it is, but you just don’t want to pay for it next year? Well you will love the latest offering from the AIOH.

A new Prize offered by the AIOH aims to bring the best out of our members by gathering ideas on the topic of, “What is Occupational Hygiene”  or “What does an Occupational Hygienist do?”  or “What can an occupational hygienist do for your workers and the company’s bottom line?” 

Enter – The AIOH CANARY!

It doesn’t matter if you are a Student member or a Fellow member, no doubt as an Occupational Hygienist you have heard these questions at least a few times before.

Whilst we have all developed our own ways to answer this question, what we haven’t done a very good job of as a collective group is informing people of the answer so they stop asking the question!

The AIOH CANARY is all about Communicating Awareness – a New Approach Representing us on YouTube.

It involves creating a short video (less than 5-minutes) that helps answer these questions. The video might be entirely video footage, or it might be a cartoon, a narrated series of photographs or drawings – the possibilities are endless!

Entrants upload their video to YouTube and then promote it through social media using the hashtags #TheCanary and #Occupationalhygiene.

Don’t worry if you are a social media novice, and the idea of twitter sends you into a twit, the AIOH Communications Committee are eager and willing to help you.

If you think you have the best answer to the questions posed…and a video camera, then you could win yourself the AIOH CANARY.

The AIOH CANARY provides the recipient complementary registration for the 2015 AIOH Conference in Perth. The winner will be announced at the 2014 AIOH Conference by the newly elected AIOH President for 2015.

 Entries are now open for all members (Student, Associate, Provisional, Full and Fellow) and close on October 31st, 2014…so get your video cameras out and get rolling!

More details will also be available in the next AIOH Newsletter….and I’ll update you here 🙂
