Ed Stuber, Industrial Hygiene Services Business Development Manager for SGS Galson has added ROH to his credentials, which already include CIH.
Registered Occupational Hygienist (ROH) is the Canadian equivalent of Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) in the United States. Conferred by the Canadian Registration Board of Occupational Hygienists (CRBOH), a national, not-for-profit organization, Stuber is now authorized to provide oversight for certain Canadian projects that require an ROH.
Attaining the ROH credential requires a science degree, five years of practical work experience and passing an exam. The oral exam is conducted by a panel of three ROHs each asking a series of questions. “You must answer them fully and think somewhat outside the box,” Stuber said. “To maintain your credential, you must compile points earned by working in the IH field, attending technical conferences, teaching, and attending professional development courses, and be reviewed every five years.”
Stuber has worked at SGS Galson since the 1990s, been involved in numerous AIHA activities and authored professional IH-related papers.
Joe Unangst, vice president of SGS EHS North America, said, “Achieving ROH indicates fulfilling a high standard of professionalism and we are very proud of Ed. We’re also thrilled at the opportunity to be of additional help to the Canadian occupational health community. Ed brings years of expertise and will be a tremendous asset.”
