  • Description:
    This brochure explains NIOSH (the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) and its mission (to develop new knowledge about occupational safety and health and see that it is used to protect workers). It goes on to describe the Institute's Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) Program. The Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) Program evaluates workplaces throughout the United States. If you think something is your workplace is making you or others sick, you and your coworkers can ask for an evaluation. It is done at no cost to you or your employer. The HHE Program has expertise in many areas, including hazard identification, exposure assessment, symptom surveys, medical testing, and engineering controls. Health hazards the HHE Program can assess include the following: 1) physical agents such as heat and noise; 2) biological agents such as mold; 3) infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and influenza; 4) chemicals such as solvents, metals, and particulates, and 5) psychosocial issues such as work stress. The brochure also points out the benefits to employees of having an evaluation performed, who can request an evaluation and the steps involved in performing one, the contact information for the Institute and this program, and what happens after the evaluation.
