Several Cardno ChemRisk employees attended the 2013 American Industrial Hygiene Conference & Exposition (AIHce) in Montreal, Canada, this past week. The AIHce joins industrial hygiene and safety professionals to provide educational sessions through poster and podium presentations. We are pleased to announce that Cardno ChemRisk won three “Best in Section” awards for our poster presentations on Diacetyl and Triclosan.

We are fortunate to have met other professionals in our field and are looking forward to continue our participation at the AIHce.
