I’d like to welcome our newest blogger, Kal Kawar of Actio.
A chemical regulations expert, Kal has a bachelor’s in chemical engineering and a master’s in industrial hygiene. His professional experience includes serving as staff industrial hygienist for IBM’s New York semiconductor manufacturing facility, and as industrial hygienist for IBM’s US headquarters. Now executive vice president of Actio, Kal taps more than 20 years’ worth of chemical engineering, industrial hygiene, and environmental engineering experience. His far-reaching expertise with global regulatory challenges created by EPA, TSCA, REACH, RoHS, WEEE – and hundreds of others – aid in developing Actio software solutions for MSDS management, raw material disclosure compliance, and product stewardship in a supply chain.
First, would like to commend this blog on attracting such talent! Second, I just found this on the AIHA web site: “Industrial Hygiene [is] science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, prevention, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace which may cause sickness, impaired health and well being, or significant discomfort among workers or among citizens of the community.”
Just thought I’d share. Look forward to the blog content!
