SHHS offers a variety of ways for participating. One way is to join SHHS to contribute to its success. All who join receive the quarterly journal of SHHS, The Archives of Safety and Health. In addition, the annual fees are tax deductible, since SHHS is a charitable and educational organization. Participation is annual. Another way to participate with SHHS is to become an author of an article for the SHHS journal.
