Abstract
This short review outlines the United States Federal Programs for conducting research and setting safety standards for occupational hazards to male reproductive function. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the Environmental Protection Agency conduct research on the effects of toxicants on the male reproductive system. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Environmenal Protection Agency regulate exposures. These agencies work in harmony to limit reproductive toxicants in the workplace. The role each agency played in identifying and limiting exposure to the male reproductive toxicants 2-methoxyethanol and 2-ethoxythanol is presented as a successful example of this approach.
