The Sheet Metal Occupational Health Institute Trust (SMOHIT) is concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of workers in the sheet metal industry.

Our goal is to conduct research and develop safety and health programs to foster a safe and healthy work environment. SMOHIT also wants to protect families, employers, communities, and other members of the public who are impacted by the workplace environment as well as reduce medical care, sick leave and disability benefit costs.

Health and safety may involve interactions among many subject areas, including occupational medicine, occupational (or industrial) hygiene, public health, safety engineering / industrial engineering, chemistry, health physics, and ergonomics.
