Associate Member (AFOH) Grade
membership of BOHS is the first step for those wishing to gain professional
recognition as an Occupational Hygienist.
As an Associate Member (AFOH) of the Faculty of Occupational Hygiene you will
be recognised as having made the commitment to progress your career. You will
be working towards gaining the BOHS
Certificate of Operational Competence in Occupational Hygiene which
entitles you to become registered as a Licentiate
Member (LFOH) of the Faculty. Alternatively you will have chosen to
specialise in an area of Occupational Hygiene.
With the support of the Society in the form of volunteer members who will act
as mentors you will be given guidance and help with your professional
development to reach your goals.
During that time you will also take part in the Faculty’s Continuing
Professional Development Scheme online and submit your portfolio of
achievement at the end of each year.
To be eligible for this grade of membership you must have
successfully completed at least one of the Occupational Hygiene Modules,
or hold a BOHS approved degree in occupational hygiene. You will find
full details of these qualifications on our website by visiting the education section.
