Health and Safety

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) develops new knowledge in the field of occupational safety and health and transfers that knowledge into practice. NIOSH focuses on the study of worker safety and health.

Health Hazard Evaluations and the Hazards Evaluated

The Health Hazard Evaluation Program helps employees, unions, and employers learn whether health hazards are present at their workplace and recommends ways to reduce hazards and prevent work-related illness. These evaluations are done at no cost to the employees, unions, or employers.
