    • Description:
      "Advanced Manufacturing involves using new products or processes in the manufacturing sector, which introduce new potential worker safety and health risks. This snapshot shows recent accomplishments and upcoming work in advanced manufacturing. In January 2019, NIOSH created a new initiative to investigate the potential worker health implications from exposures in Advanced Manufacturing (AM). This rapidly growing area uses innovative manufacturing technologies combined with both established and novel materials that have new and uncharacterized safety and health concerns. NIOSH began working with public and private partners to evaluate exposures from key advanced material and additive manufacturing processes that are already seeing broad application. NIOSH's priorities are to: 1. Investigate and establish the degree of worker health and safety burden from AM processes; 2. Evaluate and disseminate hazard and risk management practices in multiple sectors using AM technologies; and, 3. Improve safety practice training in workforce development." - NIOSHTIC-2
