Golder Associates Wins 2011 Environmental Business Journal Award for Industry Leadership
Jan 16, 2012
Golder Associates has received an Environmental Business Journal (EBJ) award for "Industry Leadership" for training over 300 industrial hygiene (IH) professionals worldwide in just two years to accommodate the global demand for industrial health expertise.
More than 75 major companies have enrolled employees in Golder courses to achieve international IH certification, and we are one of the first organizations approved to provide such training, based on our qualifications, track record in IH education, and instructors. Golder has conducted more than a dozen five-day courses in Singapore, India, China, and Malaysia and has scheduled courses in 10 countries throughout 2012. Dr. Jas Singh, a certified industrial hygienist and former board member of the American Board of Industrial Hygiene, directs the IH curriculum and leads Golder's 12 certified consultants.
While the IH profession is mature in North America, the demand has been ramping up in countries where an expanding industrial base requires thousands of qualified professionals. Because certification is a long road, IH organizations have developed a modular certification solution to fulfill this critical need.
