Abstract
The work accomplished by NIOSH in the year 1995 in efforts to promote occupational safety and health was summarized in this report. These included the publication of the criteria for a new recommended standard to protect workers against black lung disease; increased emphasis in four critical occupational safety and health research areas of surveillance, intervention, health services, and work organization; work with industry, labor and the public to revise outdated national standards for respirators used to protect workers from hazardous environments; added a seventh Agricultural Safety and Health Research Center to a national network of centers to reduce illnesses and injuries among farm workers; funded a Connecticut program that reduced overall blood lead (7439921) levels among road construction workers by 50%; published a study which indicated that gold miners had an increased risk of silicosis; collaborated with industry and labor to reduce exposures to asphalt and metalworking fluids, and reduce hearing loss, job stress, and back injuries in the workplace; and funded 14 educational resource centers at universities in 13 states.
