NIOSH Docket Number 071

The Workers' Family Protection Act (29 U.S.C. 671a) was enacted on October 26, 1992, as section 209 of Public Law 102-522, the "Fire Administration Authorization Act of 1992." The purpose of the Act is to protect the health of workers and their families from hazardous chemicals and substances, including infectious agents, transported from the workplace to the home.

Under the Act, NIOSH was mandated to conduct a study to evaluate the problem of contamination of workers’ homes by hazardous chemicals and substances transported from the workplace. Therefore, NIOSH requested information on the contamination of workers’ home by hazardous chemicals and substances transported from the workplace on equipment, clothing, or the worker’s person.
