At the second year of IIHA (Indonesian Industrial Hygiene Association) since the first time the organization was launched last year (31 May 2017), IIHA ran “IIHA-CONNECT 2017”. There were three main agendas which are Conference, Exhibition, and Training. The theme chosen for this year conference was “Managing IH as Integrated Element of HSE”. Over 200 industrial hygiene and HSE practitioners from various industries and institutions attended the conference that held in Margo Hotel of Depok, West Java at 6 May 2017. The opening ceremony of the conference was symbolized by beating a gong by SKK Migas (Special Task Force for Upstream Oil and Gas Business Activities – Republic of Indonesia) representative Mr. Nurwahidi (Head of Operations Support and Oil and Gas Safety Division SKK Migas) and was accompanied by IIHA President (Elsye As Safira, SKM, MKKK, MSc., HIMA, CIH) and IIHA Board of Advisory Chairman (Sjahrul M. Nasri, Dr., Ir., MSc-Hyg, HIU).

Symbolization of IIHA-CONNECT 2017 Opening

A day before the conference, IIHA carried out four sessions of industrial hygiene trainings with the following topics:

  • Key Principles of Industrial Hygiene Monitoring [by Elsye As Safira, SKM, MKKK, MSc., HIMA, CIH / President of IIHA]
  • Chemical Hazard Communication according to GHS [by Mila Tejamaya, PhD / General Secretary of IIHA]
  • Vibration: OEL and Measurement [by Sjahrul M. Nasri, Dr., Ir., MSc (Hyg), HIU / Advisory Board Chairman of IIHA]
  • Ergonomic Study [by Baiduri Widanarko, PhD / Treasury II of IIHA]


By attending the training, participant gained credits that will be accumulated for further professional certification. The topic of training was defined based on review process conducted by a commission under Training Division of IIHA. Feedbacks / proposal from IIHA members were also considered.


In addition to the internal speakers, IIHA invited international and external speakers to broaden the insight of the participants and enrich their experience in the field of industrial hygiene implementation. Related to the theme, two keynote speakers – Brian Eva, COH (Secretary of Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists / AIOH) and Norhazlina Mydin, MS, CIH, CPIH (President of Malaysian Industrial Hygiene Association / MIHA) explained the strategies in managing industrial hygiene programs and integrating it into overall HSE program. They offered best and applicable approaches based on their own experiences which were very beneficial for our local hygienists. Other speakers with the respective topic of presentation during the plenary session were Sjahrul M. Nasri, Dr., Ir., MSc (Hyg), HIU with IIHA Professional Certification, Wenny Ipmawan, Ir., MKKK with IH Risk Management, and Soehatman Ramli, Ir., Dipl.SM with HSE Risk Management Program.

Moderator, speakers, and IIHA representatives for Plenary Session 1. L to R: Mr. Susatyo (moderator), Mr. Sjahrul (speaker), Mr. Brian Eva (speaker), Ms. Elsye (IIHA President), Ms. Norhazlina (speaker), and Ms. Mila (IIHA General Secretary)

Moderator and speakers for Plenary Session 2. L to R: Mr. Wenny (speaker), Mr. Hendra (moderator), Mr. Soehatman (speaker)

In term of IH qualification, speakers agreed that profession of industrial hygiene requires specific qualification that cannot be achieved only through a short course and pass the exam. It needs a gradual competency development programs that are internationally recognized, and adequate professional experience in the field of industrial hygiene. Other thing was the important of conducting risk assessment and uses the result of it to develop risk-based industrial hygiene program.


This event was not only aimed to preserve an annual tradition of the organization, but more than that to provide all members with the access to quality education sessions, broader network, updated standards and technology in industrial hygiene field in order to improve their professional competency.


See you in the next IIHA events…

On October 11—12, 2016, IIHA, in partnership with Center for Assessment and Application of Occupational Health and Safety (known as Pusat Kajian dan Terapan Keselamatan dan Kesehatan Kerja (PKTK3) Fakultas Kesehatan Masyarakat Universitas Indonesia), held our very first workshop on Heat Risk Assessment and Chemical Risk Assessment at Gedung Rumpun Ilmu Kesehatan Universitas Indonesia.


The workshop was presented by Prof. Dino Pisaniello, FAIOH, FSIA, FRACI, lecturer from School of Public Health, The University of Adelaide, as well as the External Board Advisor of IIHA.

The workshop was opened by a welcoming speech by Mrs. Elsye As Safira, SKM, MKKK, MSc, CIH, President of IIHA. Then it proceeded with a pre-test session and a nano lecture before focusing in two explanatory lectures. The lectures were not only focusing in theory but also case studies, group discussions, and practice.




Participants were divided into groups for discussion.

Heat Risk Assessment Workshop was held on the first day. The suggested workshop outcomes were:

  • Outline the occupational health significance of heat stress;
  • Characterize sources of heat stress within the working environment;
  • Understand the nature of heat strain on the body;
  • Understand procedures for the assessment of a hot environment through appropriate measurement and other means;
  • Evaluate the likely risk from exposure to heat stress;
  • Suggest appropriate control approaches for the hot environment.

Chemical Risk Assessment Workshop was held on the second day. The suggested workshop outcomes were:

  • Outline the occupational health significance of chemical hazards;
  • Describe the main routes by which hazardous chemicals can enter the body, and the factors which influence their absorption;
  • Describe relevant sources of information on hazardous chemicals and processes;
  • Understand the role of epidemiology and toxicology in chemical health risk assessment;
  • Describe the general approach to health risk assessment, including the role of atmospheric monitoring and dermal exposure assessment, and biological monitoring;
  • Select appropriate equipment to measure selected airborne contaminants and devise a suitable sampling strategy;
  • Understand reporting guidelines for health risk assessment purposes to enable management to comply with relevant legislation;
  • Suggest appropriate control approaches for chemical exposure.

Mr. Taufik, one of the participants, shared his opinion about a case related to heat risk.

In the lecture, Prof. Dino Pisaniello emphasized that it is important for hygienists and hygiene students to not only think about the technical risk assessment issues, but also appreciate the epidemiology and perceptions of both workers and professionals. He also encouraged the participants to share their own experiences in industrial hygiene and discuss them with the whole class.
