Industrial Hygiene Terms Found in US State Laws and Regulations

ABIH is often asked if states recognize the CIH and, if so, where?

To find out, we contracted with G. Thomas Cator LLC, a firm specializing in government relations. They reviewed all existing US state laws and regulations to identify IH terms such as Certified Industrial Hygienist/CIH, Industrial Hygiene, ABIH, etc.

Every state document includes links to each of the laws & regulations to make it easier for the reader to locate the full text of that particular law or regulation.

In addition, each document can be searched to locate the specific IH terms of interest. Need help searching? View our tips below.

We hope this will be a useful tool for all who are interested!

PDF search tips from Adobe.com

Where you start your search depends on the type of search you want to run. Use the Find toolbar for a quick search of the current PDF and to replace text. Use the Search window to look for words or document properties across multiple PDFs, use advanced search options, and search PDF indexes.

Display the Find toolbar

  • Open it by choosing Edit > Find (Ctrl/Command+F).

Open the Search window

  • Do one of the following: 
    • Choose Edit > Advanced Search (Shift+Ctrl/Command+F).
    • On the Find toolbar, click the arrow   and choose Open Full Acrobat Search.

Search appears as a separate window that you can move, resize, minimize, or arrange partially or completely behind the PDF window.

Arrange the PDF document window and Search window

  • In the Search window, click Arrange Windows.

Acrobat resizes and arranges the two windows side by side so that together they almost fill the entire screen.

Clicking the Arrange Windows button a second time resizes the document window but leaves the Search window unchanged. If you want to make the Search window larger or smaller, drag the corner or edge, as you would to resize any window on your operating system.

Note: Instructions may vary depending upon your version of Acrobat Reader. If you need additional help searching PDFs, please visit Adobe.com help at https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/searching-pdfs.html
