MAHWAH, NJ--(Marketwire - October 18, 2007) - Ewire -- On November 8, 2007, at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center in Mahwah, New Jersey, more than 20 nationally known industrial hygienists, environmental consultants, and science professionals specializing in indoor air quality and indoor environmental quality issues will convene for the Crossroads IAQ/IEQ Conference. In addition business leaders, attorneys, as well as insurance and risk management experts will address the increasing financial risks and liabilities confronting the environmental health and safety community.

Co-sponsored and organized by Dave Goett of Affiliated-EHS, Inc. and David Quinn of the National Alliance Environmental Specialists (NAESIP, LLC), the conference will address such issues as: indoor air quality; indoor environmental quality; sick buildings and building related illness; as well as green buildings and their place within industrial hygiene.

The keynote speaker for the Crossroads IAQ/IEQ Conference is Joseph "Radio Joe" Hughes, Internet radio talk show host and president of IAQ Training Institute, which is the largest provider of Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), certified training programs.

"Our goal is to bring to businesses, organizations, and academia together to share the most recent advances in indoor environmental health and safety," says conference organizer David Quinn, president of NAESIP, LLC.

According to World Health Organization estimates, up to 30 percent of all new and remodeled buildings worldwide have significant indoor environmental quality deficiencies.
