Health Hazard Evaluations (HHEs)
HHE Program Information
What is a Health Hazard Evaluation?An HHE is a study of a workplace. It is done to learn whether workers are exposed to hazardous materials or harmful conditions. Below you will find more information about our program in our HHE videos, brochures, and annual report.
These booklets were designed to inform employers and employees about the Health Hazard Evaluation process, including what a Health Hazard Evaluation is, how to and who can request one, and what happens once the request is made.
The NIOSH Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) Program is pleased to share its 2015 annual report. Our report includes summaries of projects that were interesting and other highlights of our year. We hope the report stimulates conversations about who the HHE Program is and how we make a difference for the health and safety of employees throughout the United States.
