AT the request of the U.S. Congress, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a report in 1995 entitled Report to Congress on Workers’ Home Contamination Study Conducted Under the Workers’ Family Protection Act. This report was prepared in response to the 1992 Workers’ Family Protection Act (Public Law 102-522) [29 USC* 671], which included a request to NIOSH to conduct a study to “evaluate the potential for, prevalence of, and issues related to the contamination of workers’ homes with hazardous chemicals and substances . . . transported from the workplaces of such workers.”
