    • Description:
      "The mission of the NIOSH Health Hazard Evaluation Program is to respond to requests from employees, employers, and union representatives to evaluate potential health hazards in their workplace. These evaluations are done at no cost to the requestor. Once the evaluation is complete, recommendations are made on ways to reduce or eliminate identified hazards. Health Hazard Evaluations can help reduce hazards and create more healthful workplaces. Two hundred and forty-seven health hazards requests were addressed; 40 site visits were made; and outreach was achieved through various communications channels such as websites, reports, databases, facebook, presentations, and publications. Some hazards reported on were: 1) Evaluation of crystalline silica exposure during fabrication of natural and engineered stone countertops; 2) Evaluation of law enforcement agents' potential exposures during a raid of a clandestine "spice" lab; 3) Evaluation of styrene and dust exposures and health effects during fiberglass-reinforced wind turbine blade manufacturing; and 4) Evaluation of impact and continuous noise exposure, hearing loss, heat stress, and whole body vibration at a hammer forge company. Our Followback Program - After an evaluation, we follow up with the managers, employees, and union representatives at the workplace to see how we did. We do this through mailed surveys, phone calls, and return visits. Also, four members of the HHE Program were deployed to help with CDC's Zika response in 2016. They used their HHE skills and experience to provide vital assistance to the emergency response, and the lessons they learned will help them in their work." - NIOSHTIC-2 NIOSHTIC no. 20050313 2016-annual-report-final-508.pdf
