​The Department of Defense 8-step Industrial Hygiene Exposure Assessment model (DoD EAM), based on the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Exposure Assessment Model, provides the  structure for the DOEHRS-IH application.  Following the steps of the model helps the IH execute a solid Exposure Assessment Strategy, central to an effective industrial hygiene (IH) program.  Data collected and documented through each of the steps are used to establish longitudinal exposures records for military and civilians.
