The Sheet Metal Occupational Health Institute Trust (SMOHIT) was founded in 1986 to address the impact of decades-long asbestos exposure on those working in the sheet metal industry. While screenings and research on asbestos and other hazardous materials continue to be the cornerstone of SMOHIT’s efforts, our expanding mission now includes being the sheet metal industry’s leading resource for health and safety products and services. Our mission is to provide industry-leading health and safety solutions to minimize occupational illnesses and injuries for sheet metal craftsmen.
We serve more than 203,000 members of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers (SMART) and 3,500 members of the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association (SMACNA).
We offer the highest quality of safety training available, making their workforce more productive and economical. The well-being of sheet metal workers remains, as always, our primary focus.
The SMOHIT Board of Trustees works toward improving the health, safety, and well-being of its membership through the development of initiatives including state-of-the-art training programs, industry needs assessments, updated services, and awareness campaigns.
