Engineering Controls Program
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2016-120
What are our priorities?
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Engineering Controls Program seeks to protect workers by removing hazardous conditions or by placing a barrier between the worker and the hazard. The program works with partners in industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, and academia on these areas:
- Reducing silica exposure at U.S. highway construction sites using engineering controls.
- Reducing global asphalt fume exposure using engineering controls.
- Protecting flavorings workers from exposure to Diacetyl and 2,3-Pentanedione.
