You may benefit from mentoring if you have completed one or more of the OHTA modules in occupational hygiene. Mentoring is also helpful when preparing to write or take certification examinations. In fact, we can all benefit from mentoring throughout our careers. Often both partners in the relationship report benefits.
WHWB mentoring usually involves online communication by email and teleconferencing, because of the large distances between mentors and their mentees.
We favour Zoom for this purpose because it offers a free account with features ideal for one-to-one or small group meetings. It allows screen sharing, permitting the presentation of PowerPoint and video demonstrations and illustration of practical occupational hygiene procedures. We can help you register for a free Zoom account and offer tips on using it for online communication.
Is mentoring at a distance practical? We invite you to read this post from one of our mentors.
A WHWB mentee prepared a poster presentation describing her mentoring experience for the 2018 IOHA conference in Washington DC. You can view or download the poster at this link.
