    • Description:
      "The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has conducted several Health Hazard Evaluations [NIOSH 2019] in workplaces with reported health concerns associated with construction and renovation in occupied buildings. During these evaluations, NIOSH investigators identified issues that could affect indoor environmental quality (IEQ) such as a lack of dust control, the use of high emission building materials, and limited communication with occupants about hazards related to the work being done. After its evaluations, NIOSH made detailed recommendations to help employers reduce exposures and maintain acceptable IEQ." - NIOSHTIC-2 NIOSHTIC no. 20058319 Suggested Citation: NIOSH [2019].
