Proceedings of NIOSH Styrene-Butadiene Briefing, April 30, 1976, Covington, Kentucky. Cincinnati, OH: NIOSH, 1976 Apr; :58-59
During the day so far, I think you've gotten a feel for what NIOSH is in business for. It's basically research, as Bill pointed out, but its output is in terms of what is the toxicology of the material, what epidemiologic information we have, how does an individual sample the air at the worksite, what does the chemist do when the chemist receives the sample of that air, be it absorbed on something or whatever, what must a physician know and what kinds of medical tests should he perform to determine if anyone has been overexposed, how do you inform the people who are exposed as to what the hazard is, and what steps and means can you use to avoid that hazard. You put that all together, and we call it a criteria document. To discuss the criteria documentation process and standards development, we have Dr. Howard McMartin with us.
