The main purpose is to bring together occupational health and safety professionals in the field of respiratory protection. The society meets regularly both virtually and in person for Regional and Interna-tional Conferences at various locations around the world where members share ideas. The ISRP also publishes a journal and maintains a website that both serves as forums for discussion and research. The objectives of the ISRP align perfectly with OHD’s ultimate mission to protect the world’s workforce.

Dr. Lynch, with the full support of OHD, is committed to advancing the goals of both the ISRP and OHD. From Dr. Lynch: “I am pleased to serve the ISRP in the interest of promoting respiratory protec-tion education in industry and the general public.
