Facial Anthropometrics Research Roadmap
NIOSH Docket Number 111
NPPTL is responding to the IOM report by developing an action plan for addressing the issues and recommendations described in the report. The action plan will provide a long-term strategy for facial anthropometrics and respirator fit research at NPPTL. The action plan will also describe how to implement research to practice. This draft action plan was developed by:
- analyzing the IOM recommendations to determine if existing data is available to make decisions on whether the recommendations could and/or should be implemented or not;
- reviewing on-going and proposed NPPTL research projects; and
- reviewing on-going research in NIOSH, academia, government, and industry related to anthropometrics and respirator fit.
