FOHS Programs


One of the first programs undertaken by the Foundation for Occupational Health & Safety was the Jeffrey S. Lee Lectureship. This lecture series was established to pay tribute to the late Dr. Lee whose unswerving dedication and immeasurable contributions to occupational health and safety worldwide will long serve as a legacy and an inspiration for those who serve in the profession. The Foundation intends to present the Lee Lecture at least annually in North America and throughout the world.

In 2008, FOHS created the “Sustainable TLV/BEI Fund (the Fund).” The core purpose of the Fund is to develop sustainable financial support to ensure the continued development of ACGIH® TLVs and BEIs. Since its inception the core purpose and “cause” of ACGIH has been to protect workplace employees through the development of science-based occupational exposure guidelines widely known as the TLVs and BEIs. These guidelines have become recognized throughout the world as forming the scientific basis for subsequent development of workplace standards. The potential loss of the TLVs and BEIs would result in a significant loss of basic worker protection. Donations and grants to this fund will provide support for existing ACGIH programs used in developing TLVs and BEIs.
