National Academy Review of the Occupational Energy Research Program: In 2006, the Occupational Energy Research Program (OERP) was reviewed by the National Academies: Advisers to the Nation on Science, Engineering and Medicine. The purpose of this review was to identify strengths and weaknesses of the program.

The National Academies’ final report "Review of the Worker and Public Health Activities Program Administered by the Department of Energy and the Department of Health and Human Services" may be downloaded from the National Academies Press. The National Academies feel the NIOSH program is scientifically sound and has developed useful research methods. The Academies recommended better communication with workers and the public.External link:
