    Health Hazard Evaluation Interim Report 4, August 11, 2010

    Interim report reissued December 2012: front and back covers, lead and contributing authors, and acknowledgments were added to the original interim report.

    On May 28, 2010, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request from BP for a health hazard evaluation (HHE). The request asked NIOSH to evaluate potential exposures and health effects among workers involved in Deepwater Horizon Response activities. NIOSH sent an initial team of HHE investigators on June 2, 2010, to begin the assessment of off-shore activities. To date, more than three dozen HHE investigators have been on-scene.

    This letter is the fourth in a series of interim reports. As this information is cleared for posting, we will make it available on the NIOSH website (www.cdc.gov/niosh/hhe). When all field activity and data analyses are complete we will compile the interim reports into a final report.

    This report (Interim Report #4) includes several discrete components of our investigation. For each, we provide background, describe our methods, report the findings, and provide conclusions and, where appropriate, interim recommendations. The components included in this report are as follows:

    • 4A – Evaluation of Vessels of Opportunity (VoOs) June 10–20, 2010

    • 4B – Evaluation of Health Effects in Workers Performing Oil Skimming from Floating City #1, June 19–23, 2010

    • 4C – Evaluation of Source Control Vessels Development Driller II and Discoverer Enterprise, June 21-23, 2010

    This letter is the third in a series of interim reports. As this information is cleared for posting, we will make it available on the NIOSH website (www.cdc.gov/niosh/hhe). When all field activity and data analyses are complete we will compile the interim reports into a final report.

    This report (Interim Report #3) includes several discrete components of our investigation. For each, we provide background, describe our methods, report the findings, and provide conclusions and, where appropriate, interim recommendations. The components included in this report are as follows:
