NIOSH Numbered Publications

In addition to the publications in the list below, NIOSH has issued many other reports and documents which are listed in the NIOSHTIC-2 database.

Criteria Documents

Criteria Documents are developed to provide the basis for comprehensive occupational safety and health standards. These documents generally contain a critical review of the scientific and technical nformation available on the prevalence of hazards, the existence of safety and health risks, and the adequacy of methods to identify and control hazards.

Special Hazard Reviews (SHRs) and Occupational Hazard Assessments (OHAs) are written to complement NIOSH recommendations for standards. These documents assess safety and health problems and recommend appropriate methods for control and monitoring.

Joint Occupational Health Documents (JOHDs) are developed with foreign government agencies.
