The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is seeking stakeholder input on the progress and strategic goals of the NIOSH FFFIPP to ensure that the program is meeting the needs of the stakeholders, and to identify ways in which the program can be improved to increase its impact on the safety and health of fire fighters across the United States.
Interested persons or organizations were invited to participate in this process by submitting written views, arguments, recommendations, and scientific data. Comments were invited on any topic related to the FFFIPP. Comments should reference Docket Number 063-A for all submissions related to this topic.
