National Academy Review of the Occupational Energy Research Program: In 2006, the Occupational Energy Research Program (OERP) was reviewed by the National Academies: Advisers to the Nation on Science, Engineering and Medicine. The purpose of this review was to identify strengths and weaknesses of the program.
The National Academies’ final report "Review
of the Worker and Public Health Activities Program Administered
by the Department
of Energy and the Department of Health and Human Services" may
be downloaded from the National Academies Press. The National Academies
feel the NIOSH program is scientifically sound and has developed
useful research methods. The Academies recommended better communication
with workers and the public.
Questions and suggestions related to the review or the research program
