    Health Hazard Evaluation Interim Report 5, August 26, 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 fifth 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 #5) provides background, describes methods, reports findings, and provide conclusions and, where appropriate, interim recommendations for our evaluation of wildlife cleaning and rehabilitation workers. This evaluation took place in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi in June and July 2010.
