About the Engineering Controls Reports

The NIOSH Engineering Control Reports set serves as a central repository of current NIOSH information on engineering control technology. The content of the database is summarized from previously published NIOSH research findings.  This research was originally published in a variety of formats – Engineering and Physical Hazard Reports, Workplace Solutions, trade and journal articles.  If the data was summarized from an Engineering and Physical Hazard Report, there will be a Report number noted in the summary.  If there is a pdf icon next to the number, clicking on the icon will open the original report.  If you would like to find additional information on topics contained in the database, you may use NIOSHTIC-2 to search all NIOSH publications.
