Analytical Testing Programs were created to meet the growing needs of
laboratories specializing in Industrial Hygiene and Environmental analysis. AIHA PAT Programs offer renowned proficiency testing to serve those laboratories. AIHA PAT Programs
also provide participants an opportunity to improve and refine the
analytical skills of their staff, test new methods, or train analysts.
The primary mission
of AIHA PAT Programs is to assist participants in pursuing
excellence in laboratory services through external quality control program
assessment and to promote the practice of proficiency testing both nationally
and internationally. Our programs allow an organization to demonstrate the
ability to correctly analyze samples of common workplace and environmental
contaminants, and are open to all interested laboratories.
