Lab Caution

As a tribute to all the Women Scientist’s out there, we here at the younghygienist.com loved all of the #distractinglysexy posts in response to biochemist Tim Hunt’s comments regarding the “trouble with girls” in laboratories.

So what #distractinglysexy work happened across the globe this week?

Geeky Girl Engineer looked #distractinglysexy in her Level A PPE.


It’s not just @AmyRemeikis who’s glad that Curie managed to take a break from crying to discover radium and polonium!

 


Meanwhile,  Kristy Thornton @ktworkrestplay shows us how to be a distractingly sexy #occupationalhygienist while working at a contaminated land remediation site

Young Hygiene Graduate Snapshot: Kia Lidster [International Edition]

Posted on Updated on

Young Hygiene Graduate Snapshot_4

When Kia Lidster was in her final year completing a Bachelor of Science, she had no idea what she wanted to do after she graduated…….That was until she stumbled upon an industrial hygiene job posting, and, like most other people, had no idea what IH was (she thought it was some type of intense janitor). After reading the job post, Kia knew exactly what she wanted to do!

In April 2015, Kia graduated with a MSc in Occupational and Environmental Hygiene from the University of British Columbia (Big Congrats Kia – – – So awesome!).

While completing her degree, Kia participated in a co-op work term at a large oil sands production company in Northern Alberta. With her future ahead of her Kia is excited to report that she will be relocating from British Columbia to Ontario to begin her career in OH!

So here’s 5 mins with Kia:

1. I chose to pursue a career in OH because: OH is such an exciting, diverse and dynamic field!  I’ve always enjoyed science and the environment.  I chose to pursue a career in OH because it is a perfect match for my interests and provides the opportunity to apply and continue to learn pretty much all forms of science (biology, chemistry, physics, statistics, toxicology…).

2. My dream hygiene job is: At the moment, I am not totally sure what my dream job is. I’m looking forward to starting my first OH position in consulting and the opportunity I will have to experience OH in a variety of industries.  Eventually, I would like to write a textbook and teach at the undergraduate or graduate level.

3. The hardest subject matter I had to learn was:  Having a science background, particularly with a focus in chemistry, was a huge help!  There wasn’t a particular area that I would say was the hardest to learn, but just the huge breadth and amount of material that had to be covered in a two-year degree was at times a little overwhelming.

4. My hygiene god is: I don’t have one specific hygiene god in mind.  I have found that anyone in the OH field is incredibly willing and happy to offer their help and/or advice.  It’s a very nice circle of passionate and enthusiastic professionals!

5. My advice to anyone thinking about pursuing studying occupational hygiene is: If you like science, problem-solving, constantly learning, a mix of field and office work, and talking/working with lots of other people, OH will be a good fit for you!  It is is an incredibly diverse field and you can choose to specialize in one area, or be a Jack/Jill of all trades.

Kia Lidster  Kia rockin’ typical OH fashion in the field!
