A Healthy Working Environment For Everyone

Global Access Programme and International Partners

In 2010, BOHS launched the International Partner (IP) membership scheme, which provides a route for members of our ‘sister’ hygiene societies to access BOHS membership benefits electronically at reduced rates.  In 2015, we expanded the IP concept with a new scheme called Global Access Programme (GAP)  with the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) and the Australian Institute of Occupational Hygiene (AIOH).  This gives our members the opportunity to access a wider sphere of global knowledge, contacts, products, services and events.

There are two options for GAP membership for both organisations.  Listed below are all the benefits to help you decide which membership offer is best suited to you.  The cost of paid GAP membership is £44 per society.
